Secret Powers, More Songs About Her

Readers' Pick

The fifth and latest album from Missoula’s pop-rock masters, released last year, boasted something of a wild card: John Brownell. The former Oblio Joes axe-man joined Secret Powers’s permanent lineup, and More Songs About Her couldn’t have come out richer as a result. Brownell’s complex lyricism provided an emotional, almost anguished new counterpoint to the band’s more whimsical habits. The oohing and ahhing are still front and center. You’ll still tap your foot and hum along. But Secret Powers has shown that, with time and a relaxed attitude, great music can become great poetry—especially if it reminds you of ELO.
