Sarah Shook & the Disarmers are the latest artist to sign up with Chicago’s legendary Bloodshot Records. They play a bad-ass brand of twang and are a welcome addition to the label. They’ll be down at SXSW and look forward to seeing them at The Yard Dog. Here’s some more info from the BLoodshot site.
North Carolina’s Shook sings with a conviction and hard honesty sorely lacking in much of today’s Americana landscape. Always passionate, and at times profane, Sarah walks the line between vulnerable and menacing. You can hear in her voice what’s she’s seen; world weary, hard lessons learned—or not—but always defiant. She level-steady means what she says. The Disarmers, with their snarling boom-chicka boom guitars and an Old 97’s swing in the rhythm section, keeps it in the pocket. Tight and tough.
