Dead Sara Is Weathering the Storm

Blazing hard rock might signal a sea change

"Weatherman" is still bubbling in the lower levels of the Rock Songs chart; right now it exists in a clump of bands that also invoke the grim reaper (the gloomy Los Angeles act Five Finger Death Punch, the Canadian mope-rockers Art of Dying). If there's any justice, especially in this year when the word "rock" signifies a genre that is in flux enough so as to be anyone's game, Dead Sara will stake their claim as a new kind of standard-bearer, and finally loosen those ladies-barring signs from their place on the metaphorical tree trunk.

Thanks for this, Maura. Once you nailed the problem with today's 'alternative' so completely ('spindly Americana'!) I knew I could trust you about Dead Sara - you were damned right. I haven't been so instantly in love with a band I learned of from the Voice since The Hold Steady.

If we discussing the loss of great rock radio, please take a moment to shed a tear for WFNX in Boston. The Phoenix sold it to Clear Channel last month. For 29 years, WFNX played the best "alt rock" in New England and was uber focused on emerging local acts. It will be missed. Thank you.

Soundgarden's a great comparison. The one that kept coming to mind for me, though, was RATM: the gnarled funk of the rhythm section (as well, of course, as the sloganeering) makes me want to spaz out in a way I haven't in almost fifteen years. Great point about the lack of compression, too.
