Toronto quartet (vocalist/guitarist Dallas Good, guitarist/banjoist/fiddler Travis Good, bassist Sean Dean, drummer Mike Belitsky), that sometimes double as Neko Case's backing band,
is a roots-rock band that is rooted in the sound of western soundtracks,
surf, country and rockabilly.
Precious Moments (1998) unleashed twenty brief ditties and instrumentals
ranging in style from punkish romp to languid ballad.
Their survey of the history of atmospheric music, from
Link Wray to
Duane Eddy, from
the Dire Straits to
the Stray Cats,
from the Fleshtones to
Shadowy Men On A Shadowy Planet,
was perfected on
Pure Diamond Gold (1999 - Bloodshot, 2002),
Tremendous Efforts (Bloodshot, 2002)
Stories Often Told (Yep Roc, 2003), collections that progressively
lost the punk angst of the early days.
The pop format peaked with Favourite Colours (Yep Roc, 2004), especially
Northumberland West, the psychedelic Song of the Chief Musician,
the solemn 1000 Cities Falling, the wild Why Would Anybody Live Here and the instrumental The Iceberg.
The Good brothers are also active as The Unintended (Blue Fog, 2004),
a psychedelic folk-rock project, halfway between
the Byrds and
and the Eagles.
The Sadies' New Season (Yep Roc, 2007) continued to mine the possibilities of their elegant, soulful roots-rock, running the gamut from
garage-rock (A Simple Apparition),
to country-rock (What's Left Behind),
to folk rock (The Land Between)
to spiritual (The Trial)
to country (Anna Leigh).
Country Club (Yep Roc, 2009) is a collaboration with John Doe.
