Dirty Sweet – American Spiritual

Dirty Sweet – American Spiritual
Acetate / Sonic Rendevous
Waardering: ****

When their first record Of Monarchs And Beggars was released I had the pleasure of seeing the guys play in a small venue called The Rambler in Eindhoven. Dirty Sweet showed us what a perfect mix of southern rock, seventies and muddy blues should sound like. On their new album American Spiritual we are once again treated to much of all that; but now with much more conviction and a sound that is much more their own and maybe a bit cleaner. Ofcourse we can still hear the Black Crowes, Led Zeppelin, Rolling Stones and Lynyrd Skynyrd influences. But their damn strong compositions and arrangements sound refined, rub against rootsrock and can justly be called the Dirty Sweet sound. Add to this the extraordinary fine voice of singer Ryan Koonts and you got a recipe for a great record. One that deserves to get a lot of spins; just like the charismatic band deserves to become damn freaking big. Get it on!
