While you wait for their arrival to Nashville (or wherever you reside), they want you to know that they’re here for you.

Long Live the Legendary: Dirty Heads Add to Their Legacy with ‘Midnight Control’

“Well all hail and long live the legendary
We will prevail
And make old laws imaginary
It’s our time to shine light
Upon the darkest souls
I follow those who search for more than just a common role.”

-Dirty Heads, “Indigo”

Anyone who has followed Dirty Heads for a while know that this is a band unafraid of defying convention. The Huntington Beach, California natives — who gradually caught fire with their 2008 debut, Any Port in a Storm — have shown remarkable versatility over a career that spans nearly 20 years of exploration through reggae, hip hop, rock, roots, and all points in between.

It makes sense, then, that the band’s latest album, Midnight Control, features the band’s most seamless experimentation to date. True to the lyrics referenced above, they unapologetically continue to push the envelope in the modern music landscape.

UMC20: Back from the Beach (Sept. 6, 2022)

Summer is unofficially over, and that means it’s time to get down to brass tacks by delivering you some fresh, recently-submitted HEAT.

OK, so maybe one of these songs wasn’t submitted, and is included here simply because I’m vibing on it, post-sabbatical. Which one? Well, here’s a hint: it’s from Dirty Heads’ new album, Midnight Control, which released on August 26 and, personally speaking, is already one of my favorite albums of all time. Sometimes, a new record just hits the spot.

After that, though? You’ll enjoy a multitude of multi-genre flavors straight from our submission form. Hope you’re ready!

One of the benefits of this wacky time in our lives is that it has offered plenty of room for self-reflection. As we prepare for a post-COVID world, a newfound understanding of ourselves and our respective places in the world will surely come in handy.

Are You ‘Ready?’

The Quinn’s Daily Spinn: Friday, April 10

It’s Friday, which means it’s time to lose control.

OK, very few — if any — of us can go out and do that right now. But, at least we have some music that can help us pretend.
