No Radio-Dirty on Purpose

From their very enjoyable Hallelujah, we have the New York darlings Dirty on Purpose. I’m not going to play the game of what this song reminds me of, OK, I will- Yo La Tengo plus Canadian popsters Sloan (their first shoegazey album), but that’s OK because these kids aren’t just aping the sound, they’re playing their songs and making a great album. Also check out their EP from last year Sleep Late for a Better Tomorrow, and my fave “All New Friends.” On other songs they seem to be similary influenced as The Secret Machines.

    I love this song, and I love this group. But the first influence that whacked me square in the jaw with the intro brass section is Beulah. Duh! Of course I love them. I super hearted Beulah.
