Yep Roc Records has called the Sadies’ new album, Northern Passages, an “acid-folk-country-punk trip” and that gets at the eclectic approach this seminal band takes on its albums. But there’s a missing word in that descriptor, and that’s “rock” or maybe more accurately “rawk” in the case of the Sadies. The band’s new single “Another Season Again” rocks the house with killer harmonies, some slashing riff-based guitar playing and a whole lot of attitude.
For a band that’s been around more than 20 years, the Sadies sound as vital and full of energy and creativity as ever. The group says that “Another Season Again” “will (probably) be the conclusion to a series of songs that Sadie has written. The cool thing about this one is, there are no bells. No whistles. Just vocals, bass, guitars, and drums. We had to record it a few times to get it right but, well, here it is. I really hope you like it, despite my unpopular sentiment of being pro-ice age.”
