Last week, thanks to the generosity of a complete stranger, Jon & I were able to enjoy some date time for our tenth anniversary…not just any date either…but we were able to go to a Dirty Heads concert in Lexington. Have you heard of the Dirty Heads?? No? Well, shoot…let’s change that today! The first time I heard the Dirty Heads was last summer and I was instantly hooked….they have this great blend of reggae & rock; they remind me of Sublime and as y’all know I love my Sublime. Don’t get me wrong, they don’t sound just like them…oh no…of course, Sublime brought a sound all their own.
But then the Dirty Heads do too. DH bring their own style of music to the table by blending the classic sounds of summer with reggae, acoustic rap, and garage band grunge. Their music brings me to a happy place…when I listen my stress simply floats away, I smile without trying, there’s just a kind of joy…peace, if you will…when I listen.
I’m sure you’ve heard Spread Too Thin and Lay Me Down, but I want to introduce you to some music you might not have heard yet…so let’s go!
First off, let’s start with Dance All Night. This song is so much fun and it just brings all kinds of joy to my life when I give it a listen. When we saw them in concert it was absolutely the most fun song of the night.
Stand Tall is the next song I’ve got for you, the acoustic version of this song is amazing…it’s on my constant play list.
There were three other bands with Dirty Heads and I’ll be introducing you to their music over the course of the following three weeks: Shiny Toy Guns, Midi Matilda, and Oh No Fiasco!
So what are you listening to this week? PLEASE share it with me! Don’t forget to be adventurous in your music this week, listen to a new band…you might find out something new about yourself.
