Some call it lo-fi slacker rock, some call it stoner blues, and we recently came up with a brand new one– “indi(fferent) rock.” All of these ridiculous sub-genres work when trying to describe NY trio Dirty River‘s dusty sound that consists of Forrest Hackenbrock’s drugged, deadpan delivery and his band’s stark rhythms.
The next two streams/free downloads we have for you are “Dark Summer,” with it’s dirty, coiling groove that snakes around doped vocals high off regrets in a relationship gone sour and, “Ticket,” an attempt at self-realization and moving towards a more positive outlook with the rocky relationship. These two songs go together– “Dark Summer” is the break-up dirge while“Ticket” is the post-breakup to make-up ode.
