Louise Aubrie’s Late 44 Is a Trip

By Rhin Howard
The unique voice of Louise Aubrie is back with Late 44 and she’s accompanied by some incredibly talented people you may know. The record features Tom Edwards (Adam Ant), Joe Holweger, David Ruffy (The Ruts, Adam Ant, Dexy’s Midnight Runners) and Boz Boorer (Morrissey, The Polecats). It is produced by James Knight (The Kooks, Leona Lewis, Ellie Goulding).

Late 44’s punkness and rich pop burst forth during the recording at Abbey Road. Aubrie will remind you of Blondie, Suzanne Vega, The Killers, and Aimee Mann . The stripped down record wastes no time in pulling you in. Aubrie’s voice soars above the tracks, sometimes skipping just above the surface in an homage to another era. Late 44 conjures those days of listening to vinyl in your bedroom. Daydreaming. Singing into the hairbrush.

Late 44 is merry and balls out. Upbeat and crashing. Full of rockabilly and hard rock licks and thrashing drums. The retro feel of the album works. A solid choice for punk and pop fans.
