Without doubt or qualification, The Sadies are one of this continent’s greatest extant rock ’n’ roll bands — just as they have been for the last quarter-century. Versatile and imaginative, they skip from astral psychedelia to shuffling bucolics and leap from puckish pop to righteous garage-rock without losing momentum or mastery. Their albums deliver masterclasses on pointed songwriting, lockstep harmonies, and a devil-may-care attitude to expectations and past successes.
Their new album – Colder Streams – the last made with the late Dallas Good, is nothing short of a stone-cold masterpiece.
The Sadies will be joined by Jon Langford & Sally Timms.
