A dozen fresh faces on Boston's music scene
CLASS OF 2012 TRACK • "I LIKE YOU" [Listen] [Download]
That loud, nasty racket emanating from the basements of Allston Rat City — drowning out the bro parades and girl-on-girl catfights on Harvard Ave — comes from the fucked-up cohesion of Dirty Virgins. July's slap-happy Whiskey Dick EP was nothing short of a drunken barefoot romp through garage rock's seedier bluesy impulses, originally recorded on tape with a four-track and vintage reverb unit at Allston's Haunted Casino. That analogue hiss you hear before each song — especially on the last-call-stumble splendor of "I Like You" — is downright seductive. Just as likely to get kicked out of a city as to be embraced by one, Dirty Virgins' rootsy DIY slop-rock might never define Boston, but it certainly feels like home.
