I mentioned that Sallie Ford & The Sound Outside opened for Thao & The Get Down Stay Down last week (that's a lot of ampersands). I've been obsessed with Sallie Ford's single "Party Kids" since then. Fans of Alabama Shakes will definitely want to press play.

Sallie's voice will knock you over, but even though she's singing about not giving a shit and knowing where the party's at, she still sounds more Portland cute than badass to me. Maybe it's because I saw her in person with her adorable retro glasses. Maybe it's because the lyrics mention "dancing in the living room, drinking white wine." Whatever it is, this song is rootsy fun.
