Lilly Hiatt
Royal Blue, the second album by East Nashville firebrand Lilly Hiatt, is about the majesty of melancholy-or, as she explains it, accepting the sadder aspects of life and finding some peace in them. A dance between pedal steel and synths, the album examines the vagaries of love and commitment but steadfastly refuses to romanticize any notion of romance. Singing in a barbed lilt full of deep worry and gritty determination in equal measure, she conveys emotions too finely shaded to be easily named, yet will be familiar to any listener whos had their heart broken-or has broken a heart.

This is, in other words, not a well-behaved singer-songwriter album. Instead, its feisty and rough-around-the-edges, full of humor and bite and attitude from a woman who proclaims, Id rather throw a punch than bat my eye. Royal Blue hints at autobiography without sounding self-absorbed, as Lilly transforms a rough patch of life into smart, sturdy, sometimes even hilarious songs that dont sit squarely in any one genre. Instead, Royal Blue reaches out boldly and playfully into many different sounds and styles: Austin folk rock, Pacific Northwest indie, pre-Oasis Britpop, New York punk ca. 1977. There are 90s alt guitars and 00 indie synths, some twang and some Neko Case and Kim Deal.
