Dirt Farmers - Alibi For The Silent Guy
A second trip to Melbourne in the space of a day? Why not?
Australian 5-piece Dirt Farmer are a blues country-rock band with a penchant for the sound of 60s and 70s Los Angeles. Their latest single is "Alibi For The Silent Guy", a song which sounds quite a bit like Alabama Shakes both in terms of their overall sound, and also in their vocal similarities (despite the gender flip). It's also got a pretty wonderful saxophone interlude, which has more than a little Clarence Clemons to it. You've got to love a band who make much which sounds so timeless.
"Alibi For The Silent Guy" is taken from their début album "Free BBQ", which is out now.
