Sarah Shook & the Disarmers just released a new album Sidelong which has been getting great attention from folks such as FADER, Paste, Saving Country Music, Wall Street Journal, Noisey, She Shreds Magazine, No Depression, Rolling Stone Country (included in Top 10 Country Artists You Need to Know).
Sidelong rides in the middle front seat (before seat belts) of a '77 Buick Riviera, half joy ride and half escape. Rowdy punk rock insolence to the right, a bottle in a bag; organic three chords and the truth frankness to the left---one eye in the rearview mirror and one eye on the rough road ahead. It's a heck of a trip.
North Carolina's Sarah Shook sings with a conviction and hard honesty sorely lacking in much of today's Americana landscape. Always passionate, at times profane, Sarah stalks/walks the line between vulnerable and menacing, her voice strong and uneasy, country classic but with contemporary, earthy tension. You can hear in her voice what's she's seen; world weary, lessons learned--or not--but always defiant. She level-steady means what she says.
