Admittedly, it took six or seven listens of At Sea before it began to grow on me. And just that is too Grogan's ear-catching credit. I mean how many discs actually get listened to all the way through these days, let alone repeatedly?
With a bracing, satellite radio ready sound (you won't hear this on too many all terrain stations, unfortunately) that recalls Linda Perry and 4 Non Blondes, Grogan adds crunch and crackle to her seasoned composite of rock 'n roll 'n folk.
With a big guitar and even bigger voice that commands your immediate attention, songs like the electrifying Psychedelia In A, Far Apart, Upside Upsidedown', Walls and Windows, and She's Gone reveal a singer/songwriter intent on leaving the usual sentiments and subjects to lesser talents, and by recruiting some of the Boston area's finest, especially the whip-crack rhythm section of drummer Ken Scopf and bassist Stephen Desaulniers makes her case loud and perfectly clear.
