Sprinter is the second album by Torres, AKA Mackenzie Scott. It is the follow up to her 2013 eponymous debut which won critical acclaim from all the right places. The Brooklyn-based singer/songwriter tends towards the darkness with the depth of her lyrical subjects and the way she performs them. Sprinter is likely to launch her into the big time.

Despite not loving Torres' previous self titled LP, my appetite for this follow up was whet upon hearing the single 'Strange Hellos', a fantastic alt rock track featuring crushing guitars and emotionally shattering vocals. Not only the first single from this record, 'Strange Hellos' also opens this album and kicks procedures off nicely. Unfortunately however, from this point on the record seems to gradually weaken as the record progresses. Torres' vocals on this record go from strength to strength however the instrumentals they accompany seem somewhat uninspired and leave much to be desired.
