The Dirty Heads hit the road with Matisyahu earlier this summer for a joint North American tour that runs through the end of September, giving them the opportunity -- some may say obligation -- to team up each night for a performance of ‘Dance All Night,’ the quick-burning groove off the Heads' ‘Cabin by the Sea’ album featuring guest vocals from the formerly Hasidic rapper.
The Dirty Heads recruited formerly-Hasidic rapper Matisyahu to guest on 'Dance All Night,' the second single off their latest album, 'Cabin by the Sea,' and the collaboration may seem spiritually a bit out of whack -- but musically it totally makes sense. Known for the kind of laid-back Southern California reggae grooves made famous by bands like Sublime and 311, the Heads actually met Matisyahu for the first time back in his Hasidic days while they were both on the road with 311.
Summer is rapidly approaching, and the Dirty Heads have the perfect album to soundtrack all the good times. The laid back SoCal rockers have managed to not only further hone the sound of their 'Any Port in the Storm' breakout disc, but also expand upon that with further musical experimentation. Their new release boasts solid guest appearances Rome Ramirez, Matisyahu, Ky-Mani Marley and Del the Funky Homosapien to deliver a more cohesive album.
Reggae-flavored rockers the Dirty Heads are gearing up to drop their second album, 'Cabin by the Sea,' and to celebrate, Diffuser.fm is offering up a contest to win some gear from the band -- specifically, a drumhead autographed by all five members. This cool item would make quite an awesome wall hanging for fans. Or, if you happen to be a drummer too, why not stick a Dirty Heads drumhead on your own kit? It would look really rad, and could bring you some good luck!
For those of you who have been longing for a return to 1997, when white dudes from Southern California were under the impression that they were the Wailers, your wait is over. The new single from the Dirty Heads, 'Spread Too Thin,' evokes those days when Sublime and Sugar Ray ruled the charts.
