Here’s a note to the A&R people: Does your label need a Sigur Ros, Mum, Album Leaf, Godspeed You Black Emperor!-type band? Or do you need another one? Well we found you one: Dirty on Purpose. You might consider re-naming them Dop and telling everyone they’re based in Iceland instead of New York in order to maintain some kind of fabricated intrigue, but it’s up to you.
They are UNSIGNED. 2 guitars. 1 bass. 1 singing drummer (think French Kicks pre-Hugh). 1 female keyboardist. One of the guitarists uses a bow, a la Sigur Ros, but he doesnï¿½t have a wonky eye. They’ve got a good live sound, and their look is appropriate for their music. We saw them last night downstairs at the Knitting Factory and thought of you, and how you should check out the mp3s on their site. Because you like music. So to everyone that’s been on our asses about how great Mew is, this one is for you.
