WMSE Song of the Day (Tune In Turn Up): Sallie Ford & the Sound Outside “Against the Law”

words by Brigitte Kiepert

When a musician comes out and states, “when I turn on the radio, it all sounds the same; what have these people done to music? I just don’t care anymore,” it would be hard not to raise an eyebrow. In an era where singer’s voices are synthesized to the nines and scandals seem to determine an albums success on the charts, it is more than refreshing to hear an artist return to the dirty rock and blues sound of music with lyrics full of raw emotion and talent. Sallie Ford & The Sound Outside and their debut album, Dirty Radio (Partisan Records) proves rhythm runs deep within their soul. The track, “Against The Law,” exemplifies just that and is a perfect pairing of Ford’s storytelling and the band’s cadence.
