Review

Is Bess Rogers a folkie with punk instincts or an indie-rocker with an acoustic bent? Her EP Bess Rogers Presents Bess Rogers makes it hard to place her in a neat category and that turns out to be a source of strength for this eclectic singer/songwriter. Rogers a member of Ingrid Michaelson s touring band likes to surround her sweet lyric sentiments with a tough outer coating as she recounts tales of fumbled romance and fragile happiness. Her acute ear for pop hooks is evident in Come Home (matching a sunny chorus with a thumping beat) and Favorite Day (a hard-charging tune reminiscent of early Go-Go s). More introspective are coffeehouse-style ballads like What We Want and All In Good Fun. Dan Romer (another Michaelson associate) gives these tracks a nicely layered production, emphasizing the playful, anything-can-happen spirit of Rogers songs. More than anything, there s a sense here that Rogers is exploring her sonic palette as well as her personal feelings. It s this freewheeling quality that makes the EP an engaging effort by an arresting new talent. --iTunes Editorial Review

Forget about any hint of self-absorbed navel-gazing when it comes to Brooklyn singer/songwriter Bess Rogers' sharp-edged new EP Presents Bess Rogers (September 7) -- any remnants of ponderous soul-searching are happily checked at the door. It's also abundantly clear from the range of Rogers' five new songs that while she'd like you to hum that melody or dig into the lyrics, she'd also request that you get up and break a sweat. Dance, headbang, strap on that air guitar, but move, please. We think it probably has to do with her variety of musical stages: from playing guitar in Ingrid Michaelson's band to rocking with indie band The Age of Rockets, Rogers' brings a welcome blast of energy to her own upbeat songs. "I'm not afraid to take risks with my music", she confesses, "and that's exciting." The first whiff of commotion comes quickly as lead track -- and first single -- "Come Home" immediately establishes a vibrant, propulsive pace. As the drums kick hard and the guitars stretch from twinkley jangle to tougher riffs, Rogers' sing-along chorus takes you out of your mental chair and pushes you out the door. Even on the lovely folk/pop harmonies and acoustic strum of "What We Want" there's an insistent tug of spirited, tightly coiled intensity. And when things break wide open in the powerpop anthem "Favorite Day", it's clearly time to either dive in or get out of the way. We would, of course, suggest the former. Highly recommended. --Direct Current Music
