The Dirty Dishes - The Most Tarnished Birds

The Dirty Dishes are back with their long awaited follow-up to 2010's impressive debut EP. The Most Tarnished Birds is another five tracks of wonderfully spacey jams. It's easy to hear the maturity on these new tunes, especially on Jenny Tuite's vocals. Opening track "Hush" allows her to take the spotlight with a melody that is both gripping yet subtle. "Bloom" is my absolute favorite track. The songwriting is reminiscent of the quieter material from The Smashing Pumpkins that still takes the opportunity to pop out at you during the right instances. The cascading guitars among Jenny's confessions of "I'm watching you bloom" create a truly absorbing moment. Closer "Blur", unlike it's name, is another clear bright spot. It has the same sonic punch as the Deftones complete with driving guitars and a soaring chorus. With Jenny coming into her own as a vocalist, The Dirty Dishes are more exciting to follow than ever. Listen below and prepare to be fully enthralled.

The EP is also available on their bandcamp with a name-your-price structure. The Dirty Dishes will be performing at Brighton Music Hall this Sunday, March 25th with Cloud Nothings (who also released one of the year's best) and A Classic Education.
