Sympathy For The Record Industry is of those labels that has such consistent quality in their releases I’m pretty much on board with whatever new stuff they put out. Miss Derringer, thankfully, is no exception to that rule. This album has plenty of the dark, lovelorn, garage rock that I’ve come to expect from Sympathy releases. Vocalist Liz McGrath has a sassy, heart wrenching voice that rivals her lovely label-mate Holly Golightly. With titles like “Dead Men Weigh More Than Broken Hearts” and “Pennies on His Eyes” this album manages to craft its own darkness into spooky, perfect retro rock songs. Highly recommended for those nights when you may be drowning your sorrows.
