Sara Milonovich returns to The Linda with her band Daisycutter to celebrate the official release of their long-awaited sophomore album, Waiting for the Stars! This “downtown/upstate” band combines a wide-screen city view with a bracing dose of rural realism, creating a searing mix of indie roots-rock with an alt-country barbed wire edge. Fronted by singer/fiddler Sara Milonovich, and featuring inventive multi-instrumentalist Boo Reiners on banjo, electric guitar, and lap steel, Greg Anderson on guitar, Leo Traversa on bass, and Steve Holloway on drums, Daisycutter blazes a unique musical trail with their “mix of bluegrass and a twinge of political-punk attitude and lyrics.” (Jeff Sweatman, The Corner) Spearheaded by Sara’s original songs, including Scarecrow (a 2010 John Lennon Songwriting Contest finalist), the new album paints windswept images of a modern ruralism yet to make peace with its past while confronting an uncertain future. While digging deep lyrically, there’s still plenty of room to showcase the band’s formidable instrumental abilities: a wealth of diverse influences allows them to take on ‘folk’ songs of all stripes, from the high-octane bluegrass version of Neko Case’s Mood to Burn Bridges, the worldbeat stringband feel of the Joe Strummer’s Johnny Appleseed, to the rocking jam-grass medley from the Led Zeppelin canon of Friends and Celebration Day. With crystalline vocals supported by scorching instrumental firepower, Daisycutter forges “a deft mix of literate folk and plenty of modern-day ass-kicking” (Robert Burke Warren, Chronogram).
