Dirty On Purpose
In an attempt to continue blogging about bands that don't start their name with the word "the," I'd like to bring up Dirty on purpose. A Brooklyn based five piece, Dirty on Purpose sounds similar to a groggy, spaced out Broken Social Scene, err a less hardcore Pelican . Maybe it's just me, but every band with "chick" vocals (that's a frat term if you aren't familiar) sounds like Stars/BSS. Regardless, it's pleasant rock that is smooth and melodic. Spin's band of the day a few days ago... Their lyrics are solid (on a Jason Mraz scale: I give them a 2/5, with 5/5 being the worst), and they wear traditional hipster clothing so you know it's legit. Touring with Mates of State, Dirty on Purpose will be in New York on September 17th at The Mercury Lounge.
