Dirtbag Republic originates from Vancouver, Canada. Formed in late 2014 they released their self-entitled debut in 2015. The reception was very positive to say at least. Already in the progress of recording the debut they started to write material for this follow up.
So what do we get here?
I wouldn´t say that is something new and world changing in any way. We have heard this many times before.
BUT very seldom in a greater way then how these guys deliver their top nudge Rock n Roll. This Pub related Rock is so very easy to take to your heart, especially if you are a fan of Hanoi Rocks, Dogs D´Amour, Rock City Angels or Towers Of London.
I feel that this is very genuine, well performed and straight from the heart. You unintentionally get a warm fuzzy feeling inside your chest. It´s almost impossible to sit still or not to hum along to the music, even if you don´t know the lyrics or even heard it before.
This sure is a gem that will stand the test of time. With great songs like “Junkie Girl”, “My Part Of Town”, “Swing And A Miss” and “Crawling Back To Me” it´s very hard to imagine that “Downtown Eastside” won´t be on a lot of “Best Of 2017” lists at the end of the year.
To be totally honest there ain´t a bad song on the album. It is a “all Killers, no Fillers” album. And I for one will play this album over and over again. Especially when summer time comes, this is just the kind of music you want to listen to with your buddies while drinking beer in the hot summer nights.
So you should really do yourself a favor and check this album out and then maybe do as I will after that, search out their debut and like me see if it is the same awesome music as this excellent album!
