about

“If you take nothing else away from experiencing 06/06 than the word ‘unique’, you’ve hit the nail on the head. Everything from the music to the artwork and the documentation speaks of the bands “many years of relative isolation.” I have to concur, this has given them a sound that can be described as having a just touch of many things musical; be it the loops of drum and guitar that are reminiscent of the 60’s to some fascinating experimental rock that echoes the trends we’ve only seen in recent years. The problem in describing them is that you have to imagine taking a mere shaving [of] many different genres and then letting them age together. The result would sound something like SAH. Don’t let the number 5 that flashes up on your CD player frighten you either, it seems as though SAH has taken a nod from classical music, with each of their tracks having what verge on movements as opposed to songs. Another thing I appreciate about SAH is they treat the human voice as just an instrument, and only apply a smattering of it where it adds to the album as a whole. The album starts out with a beautifully even keeled “Inside you there’s a part of me scared shitless.” which hooked me right off the bat, the tracks continue with an almost circadian rhythm in “The stuff dreams are made of, the album continues this trend as each track contains different elements that mesh perfectly until the cacophonous end of “Muppet foot” that bleeds off into silence.Isolation is rarely a good thing, just ask Jack Torrence (The Shining) but in the case of SAH it’s allowed them to create a musical experience that is fascinating, pleasant and totally unique.”

about

Sah Marquette, Michigan

“What the hell are these guys influenced by?” Glenn Branca? Sabbath? DC hardcore? It’s difficult to develop a new musical identity these days, but Sah did just that. Sah is a blunt, drum-army and a beautiful, atmospheric string-section all at once. A perfect balance of spontaneity and premeditation, beauty and brutality. Dark, optimistic, beautiful, ugly, sad, tribal and classical. ... more
