Dirty Fences

Buzz Alert: Dirty Fences drops new(ish) release

NYC's self-proclaimed "hardest working band," Dirty Fences, is back at it again with a re-release of their first EP and two totally new tracks. The release delivers 8 songs worth of blistering garage rock, combining thumping beats with fuzzy, blitzed-out guitars to create devilishly danceable tunes that still manage to stay dirty. With tracks typically topping out at the two minute mark, their sound has the feel of a bottle rocket--short, explosive and end with a bang. Check out the Dirty Fence's First "EP" Plus Two Xtra Songs streaming below.-Olivia Sisinni



End Up at Another Know End Show Saturday

The Know End in Sight Series has featured some pretty good shows so far, and Saturday's will definitely be one of the best ways to both end this shitty year on and see off the Know from its northeast Alberta home.

We never miss a chance to see to heavy hitters Danava, who still manage to hold such a special place in our hearts even without having released any new material in a long time. Party rockers Mean Jeans will hopefully play almost all of this year's Tight New Dimension which, of course, has had us in a whole other dimension of rowdy punkness since April.

With the coolness of Andy Place and the Coolheads and NYC's Dirty Fences touring through to round out the bill, there's no doubt shit won't get crazy. 

Tickets are only $12, so it'd be smart to get there early and snag one before the night sells out.

Dirty Fences bring their drunken garage rock to Baby's All Right on 8/11

Brooklyn's Dirty Fences, a staple of the New York rock'n'roll scene, have the rare ability to sound tight and drunk at once, two things that hardly ever go hand in hand, and that Irish band The Pogues mastered to perfection. Their two singles in their most recent release, "Colleen and Michael & The Slipper Tree," are garage rock gems building in tension, and feature uplifting vocal arrangements and obvious '60s influences - check them out streaming below. If you want to release a bit of your pent-up energy, make sure to catch them at Baby’s All Right on August 11th. - Madeleine Grossman


New(YC) Releases: Dirty Fences, Young Magic, Paperwhite and Bird of Youth

Here's a quick look at some rad singles that were released in the past month or so by "not exactly emerging" NYC bands, enjoy! (In the picture: Dirty Fences).

Dirty Fences unveil video for "Judy Don't Go" + announce sophomore album "Full Tramp"

Although NYC if filled with bands playing garage rock, few local acts pull it off as competently as Dirty Fences, who's been refining this art since the beginning of this decade. The quartet just released a new video for "Judy (don't go)," in which they have fun with the oldest form of dressing up (by the way, it's amazing what a blonde wig can do, even to a man...). Look out for their sophomore album "Full Tramp," scheduled for a May 19 release. We are also digging the more psychedelic sounding opening track "Deep in Your Heart" (also streaming). You can check out two more preview songs here.
