Google “Dirty Bombs” and you’ll either stumble upon articles about nuclear terrorism or the MySpace page of a Boston-based dance rock group. No matter what, your computer will be immediately flagged by the CIA.
Dirty Bombs’ latest EP, Alpha Transmissions, is a set of “Get on your feet, hands to the ceiling”-type music.
Take a sip of that H20 now, ‘cause you’ll need it by the time you get to the final number.
With lyrics dropping “bombs”—no, not “F bombs,” the actual word “bomb”—and urging listeners to “Come on, come on, come on, come out and play,” in an it’s-okay-Eve-you-can-have-that-Apple-kind-of-way, Alpha Transmissions is like the kid across the street you’re parents warned you about. The one that you wanted to hang with so badly.
