    Default Dead Sara: Best new band I've heard in like a million years (in a VH shirt, no less)

    I flipped on the radio--something I never do anymore--and stumbled upon these guys over the weekend . . . and was absolutely blown away. In a world infected with Auto-Tune and manufactured cookie-cutter pop "stars" it's incredibly satisfying to find something worth while on the airwaves.

    I've retreated into a heavy metal fortress high up in the mountains. Rarely do I venture out and listen to any "new rock" music--it's mostly absolute garbage. But Dead Sara? Holy buckets!!! This is one of those bands that only comes around every 10-15 years and lights everything else on fire. My only hope is that the musical landscape hasn't changed too much and will allow them a decent level of success.

    Emily Armstrong . . . that voice, dear lord--it's like Joplin reincarnated and grew up listening to the best of 90's alt rock.

    Anyway, the whole reason I came here to spout off is because Siouxsie Medley is representing the Mighty Van Halen in this vid!

    I saw them last summer at an outdoor amphitheater and didn't like them at all. Just seemed like a lot of screaming to me. Could have just been a bad mix but I left the main part of the theater after about 2 songs.

    I've heard so many comparisons between Armstrong and Joplin now, that I can't tell if people are just using it as a throwaway line or actually mean it. I'm not heavily into these garage rock style bands, but I dig Dead Sara. To me, they're more like a modern Alanis Morissette band.

    They're definitely still a little rough around the edges, but they have 3 things going for them that make me think there are big things ahead for the band:

    Talent


    Passion


    and Range

    Seems like every best-new-band-in-ages always turns out to be self-consciously retro. I like to hear new bands that are doing new things. Few and far between, maybe, but an opinion from an old dog: Punk has been done. ACDC has been done. Grunge and irony, garage and glam. All done and done again and done to death. Do your own thing, kids. Whatever it is, find it and do it.
    If I want retro, I'll go to the source.

    *smashes soap box.

    I love this band, and I especially love that they are "rough around the edges." So much shit out there is over-polished. It gets a little much at times.

    The delivery and songwriting is really what sold me--you can tell they "mean it" with every performance. I also absolutely love the "roughness" of their sound. Down with Auto-Tune!

    This band was smart. They actually formed their own label so they don't have to dick around with any record industry execs and compromise their vision. That, alone, says something about their passion.

    I saw this band in Cincinnati at Bunbury Festval. They are killer. Have not been excited about a band in a long time. Armstrong has the best female rock voices I have heard in 20 years. The whole band is extremely talented I really dig the guitar riffs very heavy sound.

    The guitar riff in that tune at the 39 sec mark is so fucking killer!!!!...

    I can't believe they only played it for 10 seconds... what a waste!....

    that riff warrants an entire song

    Siouxsie can write some really cool riffs. I really dig her sound really thick and heavy.

    I noticed that the first couple lines of "Test On My Patience" are basically the same melody as Bruce Springsteen's "Dancing in the Dark"...

    Any musicians near Boston / Cape Cod want to get together and play some VH? I play drums, guitar, keyboard, bass, and I sing. I want to start a VH tribute band. Contact me if interested.

    Thanks for this thread. Never heard of them before, but I dig 'em a lot at first listen. I'm going to look forward to jumping into the rest of their stuff!

    ...new album "Pleasure to Meet You" dropped today...

    They are also on the Seth Myers' late-night talk show TOMORROW night (Wed 4/1) AND they'll be playing around my stomping grounds next Monday night at one of my favorite clubs in Omaha.

    It's been a LONG time since I've been into a relatively "small" band like this...gonna be a BLAST!
