After six years and two full-length albums with The Sound Outside, Sallie Ford now finds herself with a new band and on a new label. Having left Partisan for Vanguard Records, Sallie will release a new album, Slap Back, on October 14. The LP was produced by The Decemberists’ Chris Funk and introduces her new backing band: Anita Lee Elliot on bass, Amanda Spring on drums and Cristina Cano on keyboards.
Last week, Ford debuted the first taste of the new record with a song called “Coulda Been,” which you can stream below. Today brings news that Ford will play live in Philly at Milkboy on Saturday, November 15. Eric Bachmann’s Crooked Fingers will co-headline. Tickets will go on sale this Friday at noon via TicketFly.
