EDITORS’ NOTES

The Sadies are a powerful Canadian quartet, led by brothers Travis and Dallas Good, who take the historical power of country music and throw it into the garage for some spiking up. “Another Day Again” is a powerful wail from the reverb canyons of the best psychedelic garage-rock imaginable. Forget to check the copyright date and you could be misled by decades. “Tell Her What I Said” has a crucial country doom to its loose, Stones-like harmonies. Producer Gary Louris of the Jayhawks produced their previous album, 2007’s New Seasons, and this is an even denser, grittier effort, reminiscent of the dark, claustrophobic tones of Exile On Main St.. You can practically hear the sweat pouring from the walls on the spooky murk of ‘The Quiet One,” the Bakersfield sun of “Postcards” and “Idle Tomorrows,” the rustic hustle of “Choosing To Fly” and the muddy shimmer of “Whispering Circles.” It’s a sound that reaches inside itself to come out the other side.
