Sad Family are a band I've been meaning to post for a while now, so here it is. Melodic, dynamic post-punk from Peoria, a town of about 115,000 in the middle of Illinois. This tape compiles a bunch of live performances with a few different lineups, but it plays through like a cohesive album. I haven't seen them play yet but going by these recordings I need to.
This came out on Crippled Sound, based in Urbana, Illinois.
