Sara Jackson-Holman was famously discovered by Expunged president Anthony McNamer after she left a heartfelt fan post for Blind Pilot, along with a link to some of her home recordings. Having shed the cutesier post-adolescence of her first album, When You Dream, Jackson-Holman has entered a phase of world-weary heartache on her excellent second album, Cardiology. Her voice will continue to be compared to Adele's, though she no longer sounds so remarkably like Feist. Dark trip-hop beats (courtesy of Keith Schreiner of Auditory Sculpture and Dahlia) create the sophisticated cool behind some of the best songs ("Can't Take My Love"). But the huge standout here is a hot R&B number, "Break My Heart," which features a Jackson-Holman vocal that could hold its own next to Rihanna and an unforgettable chorus: "Honey, honey why you gotta be so cruel/All my love will never be enough for you."
