Since her last album, last year’s Untamed Beast, Sallie Ford has traded her band the Sound Outside for a new trio of women who recorded the forthcoming LP Slap Back. In this live session the band performs “Dive In,” a number about taking chances, even if there’s a chance of failure. “We don’t know what’s tomorrow/ We don’t know what’s today/ It’s time to let it go/ and that’s all I’m gonna say,” Ford sings. Her new band maintains the frantic retro-rock sound of the Portland artist’s previous releases, and it looks like they’re having fun.
Slap Back is out October 14 on Vanguard.
