Sallie Ford and The Sound Outside

Stark favorite Partisan Records has been on a roll lately, from Paleo to Middle Brother/Deer Tick, to Sallie Ford and a hopefully soon-to-be-coming new record from Chris Denny, Partisan has honed their sound and their label brand. Sallie Ford's debut LP, 'Dirty Radio' dropped Monday. It's a quirky, but not kitschy affair, that is buoyed by Ford's unique vocal performances and compelling melodies. The above video for "I Swear" is equal in quirk and throwback charm to the excellent song. We always feel like "fun" is a cheap adjective when it comes to describing music, so we'll just say that this is a great early summer album.
