THE SADIES and Ribeye Brothers
Dec 12, 2013 @ 9:00 pm| $15
Internal Sounds, the anticipated new album from The Sadies, will be released September 17 on Yep Roc Records. In advance of the release, the new song “Another Tomorrow Again,” which American Songwriter describes as “…the perfect teaser for the album,” can be heard here: http://www.americansongwriter.com/2013/07/song-premiere-the-sadies-another-tomorrow-again/. Additionally, the album’s lead track, “The First 5 Minutes,” can be heard here: https://soundcloud.com/outside-music/the-sadies-the-first-5-minutes. In celebration of the album, The Sadies are currently in the midst of a Canadian tour; please see below for a list of dates.
Recorded in Toronto, the 11-track album was produced by The Sadies’ Dallas Good (guitars, organ, vocals) and mixed by Peter J. Moore. In addition to Good, the album features band members Travis Good (guitars, fiddle, vocals), Sean Dean (bass) and Mike Belitsky (drums). Of the experience, Dallas Good comments, “There was a conscious effort to deliver a finished product that wouldn’t suffer from a deadline or budget. We recorded this record over a span of a year, in session for 20-plus days. By the end, we’d spent every dime we had and used up every favor. There is usually a sense of immediacy to our records, maybe because we make a lot of them. I didn’t want that this time.”
Formed in Toronto in 1994, the band has released 16 studio albums, including 2010’s Darker Circles, which the A.V. Club describes as, “…full of strong melodies, beautiful guitars, and the ghosts of a unsettled past” and which Under The Radar praises as, “…twangingly irresistible guitar interplay.” Additional recordings include Precious Moments (1998), Pure Diamond Gold (1999), Tremendous Efforts (2001), Stories Often Told (2002), Favourite Colours (2004), In Concert Volume One (2006), Tales of the Rat Fink (2006) and New Seasons (2007). They have also released two albums with Andre Williams (1999’s Red Dirt and 2012’s Night and Day), an album with Jon Langford (2003’s Mayors of the Moon), an album with Neko Case (2004’s The Tigers Have Spoken) and an album with John Doe (2009’s Country Club). Country Club went on to chart on Billboard’s U.S. Country and Indie charts and reached #10 on the U.S. Heatseekers chart.
The Ribeye Brothers were formed by Tim Cronin and Jon Kleiman immediately following The Teapot Dome scandal, but broke up soon afterward when someone pointed out that neither Mr. Cronin or Kleiman had been born yet. The band reformed sometime in the early 1990’s to fill a niche in popular music they felt wasn’t being adequately addressed, namely, unpopular music.
The current line up consists of: Tim Cronin-vocals, Jon Kleiman-guitar, Brent Sisk-guitar, Joe Calandra-bass, Chris McKenna-drums, and two large aquatic marsupials. They have released 3 full length albums-“If I Had A Horse”, “Bar Ballads And Cautionary Tales”, “New Ways To Fail”, and one ep “The Ribeye Brothers Are The Village Brown Preservation Society”. The band plays extensively throughout NY and NJ, but Jon Kleiman has confessed he prefers to stay home and crouch behind a sofa over performing live music. The Ribeyes have also toured both the US and the UK, although each time they forgot to pack their instruments, so the shows were coolly received at best. Artists the Ribeye Brothers have played with include: Roky Erickson, The Seeds, Andre Williams, The Soundtrack Of Our Lives, and Fats Waller.
Their music has been featured in many TV shows and movies such as Viva La Bam, My Name Is Earl, Crash, Resurrecting The Champ, the adult film “The Adventures of Rear Admiral Throttlebottom”, and its sequel “2000 Leagues Into My Pants”. The band is currently available for very attractive rates, with special prices for Bris ceremonies.
