When FADER premiered Molly Burch's single, "Wild," from her new album First Flower (Captured Tracks, 2018), it called her funky tracks "pretty rock music that stings." That sting is all in the lyrics. Burch's voice—which is by turns deep and robust, whispered and breathy—brings the rest, although her jazz-meets-bossa nova style isn't like anything you'd expect to hear on a rock station. In "Wild," she switches vernaculars as easily as she does octaves. Following up on her debut album Please Be Mine (Captured Tracks, 2017) in quick succession, First Flower is the kind of wormhole record that will be perfectly at home at The Funky Taco in Boise, where Burch will perform Saturday, Nov. 3. Stop by to explore a new alt-rock frontier.
