Coming To Your Local Bandstand: Dirty On Purpose [MP3]

Dirty On PurposeWhen we last left our caped crusaders (more like headbanded indie rockers), Dirty On Purpose had just issued their strong and long-awaited proper debut Hallelujah Sirens and were showing us around their primo practice space. Now the Brooklyn nu gazers are kicking the tires, topping off the tank and setting their sites on a fall tour that runs throughout November and into early December. And the quartet has two warm-up dates in Boston and D.C. this week.

We reviewed Hallelujah Sirens in June and thought the "record is a solid set of moody, guitar-geared indie rock numbers, many of them beautiful and affecting and some with engaging compositional touches." Read the whole review here, and revisit the band's cool practice space as described in Show Us Yours #2 here. Full fall tour dates are below. And how about an MP3? Below we link to the band's excellent tune "Practice For Having Sex," which was issued on an eponymous EP sometime last year. Or maybe it was even the year before, since we know from reviewing it that the tune wasn't on the enjoyable 2005 EP Sleep Late For A Better Tomorrow.
