LISTENING POST: Year of the Dragon — "Jailbreak" + "Bailout"


Rodcore (l) and Dirty Walt

One of the bands I missed at SXSW.  The YOTD album, Blunt Force Karma, is hard-hitting, soulful and full of thoughtful lyrics.  Driven by sledgehammer drums, grinding guitars and phat-bottomed bass, contributor Earl Douglas tagged it as one of his Best of 2009.  And now I see why. Then again, what else would you expect from a band comprised of two former Fishbone members–Dirty Walt and Spacey T?




Upcoming shows:

Apr 9    Las Vegas, Nevada–Double Down Saloon  w/ The Objex 10:00P

Apr 10   Scottsdale, Arizona–The Rogue Bar w/ Erase the Memory and Celebrate Nebra’ska and Abraham Drinkin’ 10:30P

May 1   Reno, Nevada–Club Underground 11:00P
