Sallie Ford & The Sound Outside – Dirty Radio

- by Thomas

Sallie Ford is Sallie Ford, a vocalist out of Portland, OR. The Sound Outside is bassist Tyler Tornfelt, drummer Ford Tennis and guitarist Jeffrey Munger. Together they form… yes, Sallie Ford & The Sound Outside and they have just released an album called “Dirty Radio”.

This outfit takes its cues from the past and leans heavily on 50s rock ‘n roll along with a healthy dose of soul, gospel and blues. “Poison Milk” takes you right to the cotton plantations while the percussion-driven “Against The Law” starts off hypnotising before building up to a loud climax. “Thirteen Years Old” is a nice slow jam whereas the opening threesome offer more straight-forward rock ‘n roll.

Without Sallie Ford this album would’ve probably not gotten as much attention but it’s her voice - which brings back memories of Ella Fitzgerald and Billie Holiday - that does it. I don’t think we’ve already heard all these guys and girl have to offer, but “Dirty Radio” is a pretty solid debut nonetheless.
Score: 7 out of 10
