Local Spotlight On: The Dirty Dishes, RIBS

The Dirty Dishes are a band quickly on the rise in the Boston scene. Possessing a sound similar to that of Silversun Pickups or Autolux, they exhibit excellent songwriting sensibilities and an intriguing sound. Singer/guitar Jenny Tuite, bassist Jay Marcovitz, drummer Kevin Lynch, and keyboardist Alex Molini meld their instruments together to create a dreamy blend that is sure to satisfy all the shoegazers out there. Songs such as the vibrant "Deer in the Headlights" or the atmospheric "Thin Air" warrant repeated listens and demonstrate much promise for the young group. Passion Pit has been mentioning them in interviews (here and here) and also picked "Stolen Apples" to be featured as the #1 track on their "Boston Bands We Like" Myspace playlist. You can download their debut EP In the Clouds for free for a limited time at the link below:


Also be sure to check them out at one of their upcoming dates:

November 19, 2009            10:00pm          Middle East                             Cambridge
December 4, 2009               8:00pm           Church                                         Boston
December 5, 2009               8:00pm           Half Pint                                 Cambridge
December 10, 2009             7:00pm           Northeastern AfterHours             Boston

In the Clouds is produced by Keith Freund who is in another great local band called RIBS. The group's alternative rock sound is familiar yet still maintains a voice of its own. Each song is full of character and intensity that is remarkable from the first note. Fans of Deftones and Smashing Pumpkings will find much to appreciate in what they hear. Their debut EP British Brains is due out early 2010 but for now you can catch them on the latest compilation Future Legendary from Exploding in Sound which I posted about before. It features an exclusive version of their song "Even".
