I Think I Like This
When I first saw Sallie Ford & The Sound Outside on David Letterman I thought, "Here's something for my page." Then I sat on it for weeks.

I couldn't quite put my finger on why I liked it. There are no blazing guitar solos, no overwhelming performances. But I kept coming back to the video and watching it over and over again.

There is a lot here that appeals to me. I like the retro-y look and sound of the group. I really like the way they combine a minimalistic approach with some smart arrangement to make the most of what's there. Sallie does a great job belting out the vocals. The overall effect is a solid and fresh performance of a really good tune.

The pop music world could certainly use a lot more music like this - real musicians playing real instruments making some interesting and fun music.

I hope we get to hear lots more from Sallie Ford & The Sound Outside. Check out their website here. Click the image to pop up a player or watch them in the big player on my Music Video page.
