There are a lot of reasons to check out Los Angeles band Dead Sara: blazing, impassioned classic rock; punk/indie jams; catchy guitar melodies; songs about not backing down. But there's a more pressing reason than all that: singer Emily Armstrong's loud, intrepid voice, with an interesting rasp on the finish--like a destroyer tearing through heaving oceans. And if you haven't heard of her, you should be ashamed. In a recent interview with the Wall Street Journal, former Jefferson Airplane front woman Grace Slick mentioned Armstrong as one of the current crop of female singers she admires. High praise from a living legend.
