Rip Off Records seems to love trashy rock’n’roll that sounds like it’s tearing up your speakers, no matter how good your speakers are or how loud the music is. The Dirty Sweets fit right in. They have a blown-out garage sound that reminds me of the Motards or the Rip Offs themselves, but when you factor in The Dirty Sweets’ female vocalist, with all her snottiness and attitude, and it’s hard not to compare them to Loli and the Chones. So this album and this sound is nothing new or groundbreaking, but it’s fun as hell and definitely worth a listen.
