Stories Often Told
Label: Yep Roc Records
The Sadies are still jamming the surf and garage of earlier records, but they're also reaching for something new with a dive into moody, Johnny Cash-inspired country and western. This record is the perfect, echo-stained soundtrack for a trek across the barren high plains of western Nebraska and southern Wyoming. And with talk of selling souls and a "palace of gold," "The Story's Often Told" seemingly tells the tale of a broke down junkie wandering those very lands. This is one weary chunk of music.
