On the back of their most recent release, Northern Passages, The Sadies will be returning to the UK for a short series of dates at the end of October. The Sadies – singer/guitarists Dallas and Travis Good, bassist Sean Dean and drummer Mike Belitsky – exploded onto the North American music scene 20 years ago and were instantly raised to the rarefied pantheon of alt-country greats. It’s a position they’ve maintained with the release of every new collection of songs – and Northern Passages (granted 8/10 right here on Americana-UK) does nothing to stop this stream of deserved adulation.
The Sadies are a band that happily sits in the Byrds/Jayhawks category of delicate guitar jangliness – but they are also a band that, live, are happy to push it up to 11. A memorable time is guaranteed for all.
