Sallie Ford and the Sound Outside

"Among the many BBQs and day-parties juggled, I rarely watched acts for their entire set. But Sallie Ford & The Sound Outside were the exception to this rule, one reason being their, well, sound outside. With free tacos, a cold mid-day beer and the hottest heat yet of the fest, she and her smile-less band performed tightly. Ford has this ultra-quirky voice, a throwback to rockabilly and the odd tensions of Jolie Holland. It's hip-dancing music rather than head-bobbing, with clappy melodies that name-check Jets to Brazil and have you reaching for Wanda Jackson.

They didn't move much on the tiny Barbarella stage, and maybe it was the temperature, but there was something so moderated about Ford's embarrassing amount of raw musical talent, it was slow-burning to see it manifest as it did." [HitFix]

That review comes from the BrooklynVegan/Partisan day party at Barbarella in Austin on Friday, March 18th. Sallie Ford & the Outside Sound played a 1pm outdoor set and pictures from it are in this post.

Two days before that show, Lady Lamb the Beekeeper played a BrooklynVegan SXSW show. TONIGHT (3/29) both ladies play an early show together at Mercury Lounge in NYC. Tickets are still available (and probably will be at the door).

Lady Lamb is also playing April 1st at Knitting Factory with Pearl and the Beard, and has been announced as the opener for Beirut on a few dates including Wellmont Theater on May 13th (tickets for the NJ show are still on sale). All dates are below.

Sallie Ford's album 'Dirty Radio' will be released May 24 via Partisan Records. The first song on the LP, "I Swear", makes its premiere in this post. Download it above. Stream it, check out the cover art and full tracklist, with the rest of the dates and more pics and some videos too, below...

"ultra quirky voice"...ugh.

Wow, whoever wrote that first comment must really hate themselves. I think Sallie is gorgeous... Takes a real lowlife to imply anything to the contrary.

So, it takes a real lowlife to imply anything contrary to your opinion.

I feel sorry for you. You really have no idea how arrogant and narcissistic you are.

wow, that does nothing for me at all. might as well be static.

Who cares what she looks like (even though she is a beautiful spirit inside and out), her music is totally kick ass! Just listen and learn!

"wow, that does nothing for me at all. might as well be static."

I agree, does nothing for me either.

I didn't notice her weight, I was too beguiled by her adorable vintage eyeglasses

Yo
I'm a hot and bothered astronaut, crashing while jacking off
to buffering vids of Asher Roth eating apple sauce
Sent to earth to poke Catholics in the ass with saws
and knock blunt ashes into their caskets and laugh it off
Twist is sicker than mad cattle, in fact I'm off
six different liquors with a prince wig plastered on
Stop screaming bitch, you shouldn't be that alarmed
that big lips was in the attic ???s with an addicts arm
Earl puts the ass in assassin
and puts the pieces of decomposing bodies in plastic
puts em in a pan and mixes it up with scat
then gobbles it up like fat black bitches and catfish
It so happens that I'm so haphazardous,
I'd puke a piece and put it on (???)
I'm askin that you faggot rap actors take action
and get a hall pass for this class act shit
How the fuck I fit an ax in a satchel?
Slip capsules in her glass, she dizzy rascal
Party staff baffled, asking where her ass go
In my room redefining the meaning of black hos
and go on, suck it up, but hurry i've got nuts to bust
and ?????
and sluts to fucking uppercut
Its OF, buttercup, go ahead, fuck with us
Without a doubt a surefire way to get your mother fucked
Ask her for a couple bucks, shove a trumpet up her butt
Play a song, invade her thong my dick is having guts for lunch
as well as supper, then i'll rummage through a ruptured cunt
found them ? fuckin nosy neighbors know that somethings up
Whatcha doing? Nothing much
Would shout some other stuff - gotta fucking bounce, guess the bouncers had enough of us

I agree comments about her appearance aren't needed when evaluating the music (especially in the vegan!). That said, the music is merely throwback nostalgia. C'mon Portland, we thought you were cutting edge!

Can't think of anything that would make me want to dance less.

I can't think of anything nice to say about that track, so I will just leave it at that.

Posted by Anonymous | March 29, 2011 5:33 PM

throwback nostalgia... right. unless you can actually name something that you think she is copying I'm gonna call bullshit on that. she is definitely doing her own thing. and she is pretty cute.

People, this spoof is from the show Portlandia. It is just a fake band, playing fake tunes.

She is supposed to look like one of the Sleater-Kinney gals.

Geez, you are gull-i-ble

Posted by Anonymous | March 29, 2011 7:31 PM

she comes off pretty awful in that 60-second clip. everything on the radio DOESN'T sound the same, actually. it's a good time for mainstream pop right now.

Mr. Anonymous, i feel bad for you. ms. sallie ford is gorgeous and talented. i know she hasn't accomplished everything you have in your long and illustrious life. i mean, the shear number of quotes you have amassed in bartletts is impressive. but given that you are so intelligent and clever and obviously cooler than the rest of us, why are you wasting your time on the internet making fun of something that you don't like?
i guess you have amazing time management that you are able to accomplish more than this impressive lady has and still have time to waste spewing random and cowardly criticism that no one cares about. how do you do it?
