Dirty On Purpose

Vocals floating like feathers, guitars fuzzy as moldy bread (and isn't that how penicillin was discovered), Dirty on Purpose have a dual purpose and you know the first... the second is to cure your sorry ass, just like penicillin. So, drop trou and take the shot.

In other words, this Brooklyn quartet is well above the norm (and if any of you hear Sam, Cliff, and Diane shouting "NORM!" right now, then you've probably got less hair on your scalp and more in your ears than the average Joe... unless you're a girl of course, in which case you look GREAT!).

from Hallelujah Sirens (release date June 27th), their debut full length...
+ light pollution [that's Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter Jaymay adding her voice to this track]

from 2005's Sleep Late For A Better Tomorrow...
+ mind blindness

    nice. liking the harmonies, these guys don't sound like Brooklyn.

  2. I think that Dirty on Purpose is an awesome band. You should check out some of their interviews that they did they were awesome.
