Saddle Creek


Reviews


Beep Beep (2004)


Business Casual
Unusual but compelling debut album from latest Saddle Creek signings beep Beep, who prove to be "the missing link between the Gang of Four and Jesus Lizard"


Bright Eyes (2006)


Noise Floor 1998-2005
Oddly accessible collection of B sides and lost tracks from Bright Eyes, the project of Conor Oberst, whose ability to craft songs of heart-rending delicacy and razor sharp bitterness remains unmatched and unquestionable


Faint (2004)


Wet From Birth
Fourth album from Saddle Creek signing electro-goth group, the Faint, which finds them experimenting with a post punk sound to mixed effect


Good Life (2004)


Album Of The Year
Sarcastically engaging guitar pop from latest Saddle Creek signing the Good Life, which includes in its line-up the frontman with Cursive, Tim Kasher



Good Life (2007)


Help Wanted Nights
Surprisingly hopeful fourth album from Nebraskan alt.country/indie group the Good Life, which is the soundtrack to an unfilmed screenplay of the same name that its frontman Tim Kasher has written.


Maria Taylor (2005)

Outstanding debut solo album from Maria Taylor, one hald of fellow Saddle Creek signings Azure Ray, who has released '11 : 11" one of the early contenders for best female singer/songwriter album of the year

Something about Knowing
Fantastically optimistic sixth solo album from highly acclaimed Azure Ray co-front woman and American-based singer-songwriter, Maria Taylor

Two Gallants
Mornful and regret-sodden, yet enthralling third album from Californian-based duo Two Gallants who make their unique sound by mixing up punk, rockabilly and blues
