Inspired by a plethora of American music, from the classic country of Bob Willis and Wanda Jackson to the modern Boston and L.A. punk scenes, Sarah Borges and The Broken Singles blend steel guitar and hard-driving rhythms into an infectious brand of roots-rock.

Their latest album, Diamonds in the Dark, gets its name from a line in the X song "Come Back to Me," covered on the record. Since X frontman John Doe was in the house for this episode of Mountain Stage, he joins the band on its bouncy rocker "Stop and Think It Over."
