DUMPIES, THE: Drunk Dial 8: 7”

Sep 16, 2021

The Dumpies are a really fun pop punk band that will have you thinking you must have heard them before, even if you haven’t. Everything on this record is incredibly catchy, and the cover song is sweet-sounding and amazing. I find the Drunk Dial series generally off-putting though. Drunk Dial’s whole thing is they get a band completely wasted and have them record some of their own songs and a cover. Everything the band drank and the all the drugs they took are then printed on the back of the record, which feels like a real virgin move to me. –Liz Jones (Drunk Dial, drunkdialrecords.com)
