DIRTY FEW / ROOTBEER AND MERMENTAU: Set ‘Em Free: 7”

Dirty Few tread the well-worn rock territory of Electric Frankenstein with enough garage spit to perk up your ears and enough singalong crecendo to concrete their tunes in your psyche. Rootbeer And Mermentau deliver similar rock bounce with a bit more NY-distorted snottiness. If you ever find yourself in a conversation with a music fan prattling on about the grittiness of the Strokes or White Stripes, break this 7” in half and stab them with the jagged edge to show them what the rock is all about. Gray/ blue marble wax.
