Sado-Domestics is the singing-songwriting partnership of Boston-based multi-instrumentalists
Hey, Oaxaca (2020) is the third release from Gleason-Martinez, following a side-project, Noise Floor Delirium's Still Around (2017), and Sado-Domestics' debut album, Two-Egg Scrambler (2013).
The latest album features 12 original compositions and a backing-band of Boston-area music veterans that includes Alt-Country pioneer Jimmy Ryan (Blood Oranges, Wooden Leg, Hayride) on mandolin, Bruce Bartone (Los Goutos) on guitar and keyboards, and the rhythm section of Jeff Allison (Stan Martin Band, Vapors of Morphine) on drums and Jeff St. Pierre (Todd Thibaud, Amy Fairchild, Barbara Kessler, Jess Tardy) on bass, plus special guest drummer Mike Levesque (David Bowie, Seven Mary Three, Juliana Hatfield, Pinetop Perkins, James Montgomery, Charles Neville) on the track “Instant Lo-Fi Junky.”
“Sado Domestics have outdone themselves on this sophomore album Hey, Oaxaca. The talents of the two singer-songwriters, Gleason and Martinez, combine with mando man Jimmy Ryan, keyboardist Bruce Bartone, drummer Jeff Alison, and bass player Jeff St. Pierre to create a gem of originality. Recorded mostly at Noise Floor Delirium in Roslindale, Massachusetts with some additional work at 37 Foot Productions in Rockland, Massachusetts, this Sado Domestics disc rocks out with all sorts of special touches.” -Bill Copeland Music News
Two-Egg Scrambler (2013) is an album composed of 15 original compositions drawing upon a range of musical styles and influences (folk, rock, country, punk, blues, bluegrass) and utilizing a range of acoustic and electric instruments.
“All the best elements of grassroots, folk, Americana, country, acoustic meld beautifully in the music that Sado-Domestics creates…I feel a genuineness emanating from the songs and a uniqueness among the comfort and familiarity of these genres.”
—Debbie Catalano, The Noise-Boston
"I can't say whether these folks are as badly housebroken as the band name implies, but I sure can recommend you invite them to your musical table."
