If you’ve spent any time in Birmingham, Alabama, you’ve seen a Dirty Lungs sticker slapped on something. Though the city’s musical landscape has changed dramatically since the band formed in 2006, the Dirty Lungs are still standing--and they’re just as gritty and focused as ever.
Several tours and member changes have contributed to the constant evolution of their sound. The Birmingham-staple garage-surf outfit has continuously reinvented itself and now moves forward as a four piece. They’ve shared the stage with bands such as British Sea Power, Jacuzzi Boys, The Clientele, and many others. This summer they prepare to release their Communicating Vessels debut.
Their new record is not, by any means, the archetypical Nirvana-esque rehashing of an old Kinks record that seems to egress from every garage in America these days. The influences beneath Dirty Lungs are indeed abounding, and Mitchell’s vocals are the force that unites them all.
To compare Dirty Lungs to any particular album would be unfair--their latest release is an extension of their own sound reinforced by a focused exploration into new musical realms. Produced and Engineered by Michael Shackelford (studiophonic) with mixing by Lynn Bridges, they assured the band’s music would leave listeners anxiously anticipating the future of this long-standing Birmingham band.
