The Burning Dirty Band / Press

“This earnest and ambitious album is steeped in Americana roots blended with just enough abstract weirdness. “Only Ghost,” with its eerie cascading guitar line, is an absolute gem.”

“Whether it’s the bittersweet lyrics of “Letter to Kate” and “Nailed Down,” the ultra catchiness of “How Our Castle Fell” and “Girls Are Fun,” or the musical digressions on “Worms” and “17 Year Sun;” every moment on this album exudes a level of passionate grit that interweaves itself into every track. This is the signature mark of The Burning Dirty Band, playing hard and giving themselves to their music...”

“The band certainly has a quirky feel not a million miles from NRBQ (not bad, being compared to the world’s best unknown band!) and an addictive quality, not to mention a subtle sense of humor that lurks in the darker regions of its sound. The band’s musical texture is odd, but repeated listening reveals some wonderful instrumental excursions that are surprisingly more structured than one would originally imagine. The old adage of “a bad originator is better than a thousand imitators” certainly rings true here: ’cept these guys are good originators.”

“They call it "an ice cream store for your brain" and somehow, you just can't argue with that. Colors, flavors, creamy, delicious tastes abound in this album of indie bred Beatles pop. With jangle and bounce at its foundation with layers of classic guitar writing and punchy vocals weaving throughout, the collective voice is one that's equally tart and meaty. The Burning Dirty Band has honed in on the perfect balance between carving out a personal sound and drawing from well-loved, well-developed musical traditions.”
