DIRTY DISHES: “RED ROULETTE”
GENRE | FUZZY SHOEGAZE
LABEL | EXPLODING IN SOUND RECORDS / SEAGREEN RECORDS
Jenny Tuite and Alex Molini may have left our beloved city for the sky-brimming palm trees of Los Angeles, but Dirty Dishes still has the Allston grime clinging to the creases of their sound. Dirty Dishes lost two members during the move, it’s true, but on “Red Roulette,” the third single off the full-length debut Guilty (available late January), the duo manages to lay down a track so filled with noise-pop and rounded punk that the chaos it creates surpasses their previous work—and that alone has us ready to put bills on the table. Recorded in a garage, “Red Roulette” is bleeding with fuzz. It’s there in the bass, in the shaking of the drums, and in the sweetened tilt of the synth. They’re playing tricks and it’s hard to look away, especially with Tuite’s smooth, vocal mumblings falling in similar fashion to those of Now, Now. “Red Roulette” is no gamble; it’s straightforward prowess that’s already throwing punches.
