Having earned a well-deserved reputation as a first-rate DIY singer/songwriter/one-woman band, Colleen Green spreads her musical wings on latest effort “I Want to Grow Up.” It’s a rock-solid follow-up to 2013 gem “Sock It to Me,” which put Green’s self-styled “stoner pop” on the map.

Colleen Green CDThis time around, Green has a full band in tow, including Jake Orrall (JEFF the Brotherhood) and Casey Weissbuch (Diarrhea Planet), and the results are a fuller sound and songs about maturation and all the anxieties that come along with growing up.

The 30-year-old Green comes out of the gate firing with the title track and “Wild One,” setting the stage for what’s to come on the 10-track, 37-minute platter. Additional keepers include “Deeper Than Love,” “Things That Are Bad for Me (Part II)” and set closer “Whatever I Want.” It’s nice to see the talented Green continue to evolve as an artist. I see big things in store for her. (Jeffrey Sisk)
