Saturday Night - Saturday Night

Our intentions were good.  We had a new album to bring you by Washington, D.C. crew Saturday Night.  The album was titled Saturday Night, and we had it all planned to post about it last Saturday night.  So, you probably are wondering why, with everything aligned so neatly, there was no feature about this album on Saturday night.  What could have intervened to thwart the performance of our duties?  The answer, quite simply, is, well, our own Saturday night.  We won't go into detail so as to protect identities, jobs, and relationships, and because some of us are aware that the statute of limitations hasn't expired on anything yet.  So suffice it to saw that we were good and truly thwarted.  And from what we remember, it was glorious.

With that out of the way, on to Saturday Night.  Whether you knew it or not, this is the power pop and swaggering, crunchy indie pop you have been waiting for -- a band that doesn't make you choose among stomping rhythms, slashing riffs, happy hooks, and male/female vocals.  You get it all in ten tracks of joyful, energetic music.  And these guys understand that concision is the best delivery for a good hook, as only one song breaks the three minute mark and six of them don't even hit two minutes.  Our instincts are that this is a cracking good live band, but as their "national" tour ignores those of us on the lefty coast, we can't personally verify that until we make our long-delayed trip to D.C. to check out the band in their natural habitat.  However, we think you will find the digital version of the band to be an excellent version for now.  Welcome to your Saturday Night!

The members of the band are Luke Reddick, Nora Button, Cash Langdon, and Jesse Sattler.  Saturday Night is out now via Gentle Reminder Records.
