Never judge a book by its cover… At least that’s what they say. But, Saso’s awesomely simple album cover, and even their fantastically minimalist website completely describes ‘Exitudes’, the Irish band’s first album in five years.
If you love Radiohead but hate Radiohead rip-off bands, then Saso is for you! The voice rivals Thom Yorke, and the quality rivals just about anyone… Dark, straightforward, slow, reverb, ambient, beautiful…. there are your tags!!
2011 has proven to be the best year of indie releases, well, at least as long as I’ve been writing reviews (and that’s been quite some time!).
Another indescribable release that would be disappointing to pass up….
