This post's artist (KILL SADIE) is from the April 2013 Mix, this is track #17.
KILL SADIE from Minneapolis sounds like an interesting mix of bouncy, Hot Cross-esque guitar riffing with 2 very competent guitarists, some imaginative song structures and strained vocals not unlike And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead with some Blood Brothers-styled sass. The albums are also generally littered with noise, atmospheric and softer (yet still obtuse) slower rock tracks.
After disbanding, KILL SADIE branched out to the following very popular acts:
These Arms Are Snakes
Minus The Bear
Pretty Girls Make Graves
Sharks Keep Moving
It truly is hard to categorize this band. Any fan of indie rock all the way to screamo will most likely have their ears perk up while listening. I would recommend starting with their only LP and hording the rest if you dig it. Stream the song that I had to upload on youtube that I linked at the bottom for a quick, and amazing, listen. I can't believe this song wasn't available on there. Crazy.
