In a decade, Haley Bonar's music has grown from fragile, acoustic strumming to the art rock of 2014's Last War. (Additionally, material too noisy and defiant to fit under her own name has spilled over into the post-punk side project Gramma's Boyfriend.) In all, her ear for melody is matched with a knack for words that explore the physical and emotional world's powerful intersections — "You were born into an ocean; I grew up in a swimming pool/Underneath the Band-Aid colored pain," she sings in "From a Cage." Life's darker moments prove poetic in her hands, but also humorous. The laundry list of woes in "Bad for You" — "Don't hope, don't dope, or hate the pope/Or use unhypoallergenic soap" — is delivered with levity and a knowing wink. Great beauty comes across in the quiet build of harmonies in "Eat for Free," but also in an angrier statement like "No Sensitive Man." No matter the topic or style, her determination to make every song her own comes through.
