Product Description

Review

The Sweetback Sisters, a sextet of unrelated musicians only two of whom -- co-lead singers Zara Bode and Emily Miller -- are female, deliver their second album in Looking for a Fight, once again revealing themselves as a talented retro-country tribute band. Based in Brooklyn, the group embraces many styles of traditional country music, some of them in forms already revived once before in these songs. In addition to Western swing (the Sons of the Pioneers' "Cowboy Ham and Eggs") and countrypolitan (the Patsy Cline evergreen "Love Me, Honey, Do"), for example, they cover neo-Tex-Mex (Laurie Lewis' "Texas Bluebonnets"), neo-Bakersfield sound (Dwight Yoakam's "It Won't Hurt When I Fall Down from This Bar Stool"), and neo-rockabilly (the Traveling Wilburys' "Rattled"). They also write their own country songs, with a downhearted cry-in-your-beer honky tonk flavor as well as more amusing observations from the barroom, notably guitarist Jesse Milnes' "Too Many Experts" (which is one of the things one can encounter in a bar). Bode and Miller are equally effective frontwomen, with Bode taking some of the more assertive numbers, such as Milnes' title song, and Miller the sweeter ones, and they harmonize well together. The Sweetback Sisters achieve the difficult task of approaching their frankly old-fashioned music with an enthusiasm that is not devoid of humor, yet never descends into parody. -- All Music Guide May, 2011

A great album. Like all the Sweetback Sister's stuff, it's pure awesome.

I saw them recently performing stripped down... not NAKED, (get your mind out of the gutter) Just without their back-up band. Emily and Zara up there singing on stage. It was a different sound and really nice.

E&Z, if you're reading this, it would be so cool if you put out an album of the Duo versions!

This album hits ALL the right spots in body and soul!

I can't wait to see them live--I think that they're coming out to the northwest part of the Left Coast in February.

Bless this band for reaffirming that good music is still being made!!!!!

"Looking for a Fight" is the Sweetback Sisters' finest work yet. The group has managed to capture a classic country sound, but make it sound fresh, modern, lively, and, dare I say, tasteful? Harmonies are spot-on, instrumentals smokin', and twangs in all the right places.

What's also unusual is the quality of all the songs on the album. How many times do you buy a CD site unseen, only to find that half the tracks are clunkers? Not so here.

Credit should also go to whoever did the arranging, audio recording, and production. Something about "Looking for a Fight" just *feels* right.

So bust out your iPods, this one's a keeper!

Great modern take on classic country, especially from Brooklyn! Can't wait for you to get one of the older CDs in stock

Previous album(s)by SS are a little spotty but this one is "spot on" - great old timey gal harmonies mixed with contemporary lyrics, arrangements and tempos. Yes, and due credit to the album producers for the recordings and choices of songs. The cover of Dwight Yoakam's "It Won't Hurt When I Fall Off This Barstool" is outstanding.
