Louise Aubrie - Time Honoured Alibi

Looking to add her name to the sparkling list of songstresses hailing from the 
United Kingdom, Louise Aubrie lets her singing create a striking signature. Having
parlayed her indie post-punk roots into a style tinged with pop in north London,
Aubrie took up residence in New York City to further her burgeoning success, realized
with the release of her first album, Fingers Crossed in 2010. Aubrie has now put forth
another album, Time Honoured Alibi, with just that same verve. Her songwriting rings
clear on every track of the album, and the production by famed Morrisey collaborator
Boz Boorer highlights a gentle yet strident voice. “Keep It Coming” is a finger-snapping
standout song, replete with vibrant guitars and an understated bass-line framed by
peppy hand-claps. “Tonight At Ronnie’s” possesses that kind of rocking rhythm you
could have danced to during ‘American Bandstand’ when new wave was all the rage.
“Gold” is a mellow, twinkling ballad that soothes with a steady melody and Aubrie’s 
steady vocals easing around her soft chords. Time Honoured Alibi is one album that
is certain to give the hours you spend listening to it a good deal more radiance.
