Today rocking out the excellent The Dirty Hand Family Band who by chance were playing at the bar where we went for our unplanned Balsa Man after party.
Can’t get enough Sallie Ford right now. Love the pissed off looking marionette in this video for “Cage”, which if you are looking for an angry bad relationship song you can’t go wrong with this one.
Listening to Sallie Ford & the Sound Outside feels like stumbling into the best thrift store in the world (or at least the best one in Portland). They pour out a wonderful mix of old and new from rockabilly to blues to just good old rock n’ roll. With a hint of Joplin warble and a bucketful of authentic passion Sallie Ford belts out songs about everything from the terrible state of commercial radio (i.e. the song in the video above) to the ups and downs of relationships to the death of her father to writing letters on a typewriter.
