Tires

by The Burning Dirty Band

Released 2014

A multi-part piano-led rock waltz about leaving a younger version of yourself in the rearview mirror. Destination to be determined. Recommended for fans of mid 70's David Bowie, Elvis Costello, Wilco, and Built to Spill.
NOTES
Tires

I sold the last jewelry to tourists who didn't have a clue
I locked the door for the last time, the auction: through
We lessened our memory's burden, we hide from the truth
Recessed in the back of our mind, we keep safe the proof

Released 2004
Released 2004
An ice cream store for your brain- Ambitious "Abbey Road"-style melodicism, left-of-center indie explorations, and confident rock thump.
NOTES
"17 Year Sun" has risen. The Burning Dirty Band's second full-length album will be the most surprising disc you'll hear all year.

What exactly is the 17 Year Sun? We say it's a blend of cicadas, impermanence, and moments of unexplainable clarity. The sonic inquisitiveness and diverse tastes of the BDB are fully realized in this sophomore studio effort. Shimmering fluorishes of guitar and keys mingle amicably with nimbly-stepping bass tones and rootsy, swaggering drum rhythms. The …

Rock and roll with extra gravy: garage-marinated mutant blues, rollicking roots groove, and forward-thinking indie quirkiness.
