Roll Around Please donΓÇÖt let Sallie FordΓÇÖs demure appearance and thick-rimmed specs fool you. Though she looks like she belongs either behind the desk of a library or in your grandmotherΓÇÖs canasta game, the Portland-based frontwoman of The Sound Outside is as rough and rollicking as they come and could probably drink you under the table if youΓÇÖre not careful. This disclaimer could be applied to her 2011 debut album, Dirty Radio, but the print shouldnΓÇÖt be as fine for her latest effort Untamed Beast, which, as its title indicates, sees FordΓÇÖs snarling confidence reaching new heights as she establishes herself as one of musicΓÇÖs most badass frontwomen. For example, hereΓÇÖs a list of some the things she not-so-gently reminds listeners she is capable of on ΓÇ£Bad BoysΓÇ¥: cuss, scream, sweat, yell, raise hell, fuck and drink. She doesnΓÇÖt care what you think, and sheΓÇÖs here to prove you wrongΓÇªyes, you, the one who mistook her for a lost librarian. How is it possible to be so intimidated by and attracted to something at the same time? I would happily let Sallie Ford rip my heart out and do whatever she wants with it. The ratcheted-up intensity and aggression is the most apparent difference between Dirty Radio and Untamed Beast. Her voiceΓÇÖs endearingly quirky lilt has been scaled back slightly and her tone is, for the most part, more uncompromising. But this isnΓÇÖt to say Sallie Ford has lost her playful charm or occasionally tender side. One of the strengths of Dirty Radio was the amount of ground it covered stylistically from track to track, and the same can be said of Untamed Beast. For every rocker like ΓÇ£They Told Me,ΓÇ¥ ΓÇ£Party KidsΓÇ¥ and ΓÇ£DevilΓÇ¥ there are tracks like the whimsical, acoustic love song ΓÇ£ParisΓÇ¥ and the cleverly playful ΓÇ£Do Me Right,ΓÇ¥ in which Ford uses down-home food analogies to express just what she wants from the songΓÇÖs object. She also points out her awareness of all the genre comparisons and retro tags that have been heaped on her since Dirty Radio. In ΓÇ£Rockability,ΓÇ¥ a fierce kind of anti-tribute to her rockabilly influences that features unhinged guitar licks characteristic of the genre, she sings ΓÇ£CanΓÇÖt wait to see the day when all the genres melt away / So sick of being in the box, wonΓÇÖt you unlock me.ΓÇ¥ WhatΓÇÖs most interesting about Untamed Beast, though, is that for all FordΓÇÖs barking confidence, the albumΓÇÖs lyrics showcase a certain lovelorn vulnerability, even some of those she sings with aggression. On ΓÇ£AddictedΓÇ¥ Ford immediately follows the callous line ΓÇ£Put you out like a cigarette buttΓÇ¥ by painfully wondering ΓÇ£How will I ever get over you?ΓÇ¥ The aforementioned ΓÇ£ParisΓÇ¥ details how sheΓÇÖs lost in the spell of a parasitic lover, and on the albumΓÇÖs final track, the softhearted ΓÇ£Roll Around,ΓÇ¥ she lets down her defenses completely and sings about how all she wants to do is ΓÇ£roll around in bed with you.ΓÇ¥ ItΓÇÖs a touching parting statement that makes it clear that despite her bristly front, Sallie Ford is a victim of love just like the rest of us.
