Goodbye Love is the brand new album from New York City's hardest-working band, Dirty Fences! Out now via NYC’s own Greenway Records, it’s the band’s third studio album and comes as a follow-up to 2013's Too High To Kross (Volcom) and 2015's Full Tramp (Slovenly). The album is available on limited-edition splatter vinyl, cassette, CD and digitally.
Dirty Fences are a quintessential New York band: the kind the city is known for producing; the band you’d want to hear blasting out the PA at some dive bar that is beyond capacity before they even take stage. They often refer to themselves as a gang, and that mentality is evident in every meaty riff and perfectly-executed harmony on Goodbye Love. It’s a perfect slice of wax that evokes early American rock and punk acts such as Redd Kross, The MC5, and Johnny Thunders — whilst showing an obsession with early KISS and Motley Crüe through the lens of The Dictators and Ramones — but the band still manages to maintain an identity all their own on the new record.
las Rosas are three shed November leaves, floating and bobbing on the surface of a languid stream, drifting closer to the muddy banks, then climbing out of the water, walking along the road on their little brown stems, piling into their sea-foam-green van, driving away, and releasing «Flower in the Sun» (Burger Records, 2014) and «Ms. America» (Dizzybird Records, 2015). They're the little leafs you see driving around the USA, playing rock shows far and wide, with their little guitars and drums. No autumn leaf, if you bothered to check, ever sits still.
Christopher (the birch leaf) plays the drums, even with a broken hand, when he needs to. Jose A is the red leaf of a Japanese maple and not a picky eater, except during dessert. He plays bass and shares a first name with singer Jose B, who incorporates lead guitar-playing with mixed results-- he is the needle of a long-leaf pine.
