Beauregard by Jordan Bimm

now-magazine-logoAfter releasing an album of alt-rock covers in 2005, Toronto’s Kate Rogers returns with a clutch of originals penned with co-writer Matthew Bannister. On the disc, produced by Chris Stringer (the D’Urbervilles, the Coast), Rogers’ rich voice exudes a folksy confidence that’s mostly put to good use, with the exception of a jarring heavily filtered trip-hop bridge stuck in the middle of Whippets. But generally it works, and Togers really hits her creative stride on Stealing From You, on which she sounds like a rockier Sarah Slean.
