Ladyfinger seems to be Omaha's answer to Queens of the Stone Age and quite possibly the most rockingest outfit to emerge from the Saddle Creek Records imprint. The band, which often shows love to its home state by adding an (ne) to its title, is releasing its sophomore LP, Dusk, on February 3. From the one-sheet:
"Recorded once again with Matt Bayles (Mastodon, Minus the Bear, Isis), Dusk is Ladyfinger (ne) at the peak of their powers. Witness Chris Machmuller's confidence in his vocals grow exponentially and Pat Oakes' powerhouse drums finding a firmer root to propel every snare hit and bass kick. An album clearly born of playing local dives and national tours over the last couple of years, Dusk is a statement of intent."
