Track of the Day: 'Weatherman'

Past TracksDead Sara is an up-and-coming Los Angeles rock outfit led by a pair of high-wattage young ladies, singer Emily Armstrong and guitarist Siouxsie Medley. Be careful with the volume controls on this one. Their debut album is due out in November, and fans of honest rock are in for a real treat. Armstrong has a wonderfully soulful, occasionally ragged voice, and she's perfectly matched by the raw snarl of Medley's Les Paul. If there is a ready comparison for this group, I'd say there's a strong whiff of Jane's Addiction to them. But those guys were an odd-but-pure distillation of macho with lots of guitar wankery. Dead Sara goes in a very different direction. Riffs, more riffs, and texture. Less trickery, and more power. Look for them on a main stage near you next summer.
