    It may not be their best--it’ll be hard to top Ugly--but it’s taking steps in a new direction, and positioning the band for even greater things to come.

    This latest effort shift boils down to two key foci: bolder, less guarded lyrical choices (much of the record deals with Paternoster's ongoing battle with chronic mono) and more strategic space for the frontwoman's legendary guitar solos.

    Rose Mountain could be the album that finally brings these hardworking punkers to a wider audience after nearly a decade of existence, and it would be well deserved.

    This is the record where the Females escape the punk shadow that’s long threatened to typecast them.

    Rose Mountain is less adventurous than 2012’s sprawling Ugly, but it excels in its compactness.

    Many of these 10 songs are slower or softer than the trio's previous output, and they balance Rose Mountain's overall effect very nicely.

    As always, frontwoman Marissa Paternoster's winding guitar solos and dogged vibrato vocals steal the show.
