Album Review

Bands come and bands go, of course, but the swift demise of Sarge still stings — with their breakthrough sophomore album The Glass Intact, the group delivered on all the promise of their previous records, perfecting a taut, infectious brand of punk-pop distinguished by the vulnerable vocals and razor-sharp songs of frontwoman Elizabeth Elmore. The bittersweet Distant compiles the remaining odds and ends from Sarge's all-too-brief career, assembling a hodgepodge of demos, live recordings, and covers; opening with the band's final new recordings and concluding with a pair of Elmore solo efforts, the set is highlighted by both electric and acoustic versions of "The End of July" (aka "all my plans changed..."), a heart-rending evocation of separation and loss given even greater impact by its context.

A fitting farewell.
