[THROWBACK POP ROCK] “You may think of me as just a little girl/But I am here to prove you wrong” sings Sallie Ford on “Bad Boys.” And with her rockabilly swagger and the sharp growl in her vocals, you know she’s speaking the truth. Sallie Ford, accompanied by her band, the Sound Outside, is giving you the middle finger and really doesn’t care. On latest LP Untamed Beast, the four-piece continues the bluesy, early rock’n’roll sound established on 2011’s Dirty Radio, right down to the simple drum shuffles, tinny electric guitar and booming bursts of upright bass. Only this time around, Ford’s striking vocals are even more at the forefront, as she snarls, hollers and struts her way through songs mostly revolving around those good old standbys of sex and rebellion.
