Ladyfinger (ne): Dusk

Ladyfinger (ne)
Saddle Creek Records [2009]

Fire Drills Review:
Don't let this record release from Saddle Creek mislead you into thinking that Omaha's Ladyfinger (ne) fall in line with the labels typical indie offerings. Instead, Ladyfinger (ne) bring a power rock on their sophomore record Dusk, which combines elements from the 70's radio rock of Deep Purple to 90's noise rockers The Jesus Lizard, while putting their own modern stamp on the records ten tracks. What carries Ladyfinger (ne) to another level is the bands musical tightness, which creates a wall of sound attack for each grinding track and is maintained by the calm and cool vocals of Chris Machmuller. These elements all total up for a rock record that will be perfect to roll down the windows and crank on the first Spring day in 2009!

Key Track: "Little Things"

Band With Similar Fire: Queens Of The Stone Age
