Sweet Spirit "St Mojo"
If you aren’t already a fan of at least one Sabrina Ellis band, you’re doing something wrong. Besides her garage rock wunderband A Giant Dog, she is also the front woman of Sweet Spirit. What started out as a solo project to give her a chance to do some solo expressions quickly turned into a 8 piece rollicking good time (and includes AGD co-founder Andrew Cashen), more interested in Nashville sounds than A Giant Dog are. After opening for Spoon, and being invited to play SXSW on the merit of live shows only (and not even applying to play) music listeners in general took notice. St. Mojo (Nine Mile Records), the follow up to their debut, is an exciting batch of tunes everywhere from gentle to bombastic. Check out the song Joan Jett should cover next “The Power”
