Sick of Sarah
Sick of Sarah are made up of five girls who thankfully, are not sick of ecah other. Their album, 2205, is a spiky pop treat that's moody in all the right places and will bring to mind Sleater Kinney at their most melodic. With just enough angst and just enough crunch, Sick of Sarah create a mood swinging rock and roll record with enough of a punk leaning to give 2205 a nice edge.
2205 is an unpolished gem of a record. This is the kind of thing that's not overly produced, nor is it recorded on about a $5 dollar budget and sees the band developing into a tighter unit with the songs to match. From the shuffly jangle of , "Kiss Me," to the choppy emotions of, "Simple Parts," 2205 is youthful, emotional, and pretty darn good.
Angsty, anxious, and filled with charming melodies, Sick of Sarah will leave you anything by sick by the time 2205 finishes. These girls are good and they're clearly on to something here and you can almost hear how close they are on each and every song. Pick up 2205 now so when these girls are bigger than sliced bread you can say, "Hey, I remember when these girls put out their first record."
