The Sadies

Artist: The Sadies

Album: Favourite Colours

I learned about it...: Mojo magazine

Comments: A Toronto band fronted by the Woods brothers. They gained fame as Neko Case's backing band, and have five albums to their name. They've also made various appearances on other artists' work including André Williams. On Favourite Colours Robyn Hitchcock reciprocates the favor, providing vocals on one track. On the surface, you might criticize them as having an unfocused sound, leaping among garage, surf, country, and americana folk. But cut them some slack for just having fun, making a variety of music well. They're not ambitious, but they're deserving of more attention than they've received.
