Yesterday I got stuck driving 3 hours north for a 3:00 meeting that ended up only lasting 15 minutes. When the meeting was scheduled I wasn’t sure when I’d get home so I asked Beverly to cover the show for me and when I got out so early I decided to take advantage of the situation and go beer hunting. Beverly did a great job with the show and I ended up scoring a good collection of beers I can’t get down here in the St. Petersburg area. Win, win if you ask me.

Episode 73: aired 05.24.2012


I am told that The Sadies are known as “Canada’s best live band”. I wouldn’t know as I’ve never seen them and, to be honest, up until a couple of weeks ago I’d never listened to them. Their name has always reminded me of some navel-gazing indie rock band, and there are times when Darker Circles drifts dangerously close to being just that. Indie leanings aside, however, the bulk of the album is well worth checking out. What really wins me over with these guys is the bleakness of their lyrics.

The album would be a shoe-in for the Essential Listening list (and almost gets on for the song “Tell Her What I Said” alone), but there are a few tracks that wander a smidge too close to the “indie” and “Pink Floyd” realm for me to include it. Nonetheless, it’s a strong album and I’ll most certainly be checking out their back catalog. Now, where should I start?

The Sadies – Tell Her What I Said
The Sadies – Another Year Again
The Sadies – Choosing To Fly
