The Burning Peppermints
The Burning Peppermints
While their name evokes candy-colored images of rock revivalists like The White Stripes, The Burning Peppermints have fused a visceral combination of dingy garage rock and West Coast surf, all delivered via an infamously aggressive live performance.

Jake Wittig’s workhorse guitars are laden with fuzz, and alternate between groove-heavy riffs and devastating chords in tandem with rhythm agent Ahmad Farzad. Wittig’s tonal dynamics recall the monstrous crunch of Thee Oh Sees’ John Dwyer, while vocals suggest the manic charisma of Ty Segall. Farzad administers bass and baritone via guitar, allowing him a sweeping range of unfathomable low registers and sharp, cutting notes. Ryan Colebeck holds the entire volatile ensemble together with airtight percussion.

The Burning Peppermints are set to release their sophomore album "Glittervomit" in the summer of 2017.
Dirty Lungs
Dirty Lungs
If you’ve spent any time in Birmingham, Alabama, you’ve seen a Dirty Lungs sticker slapped on something. Though the city’s musical landscape has changed dramatically since the band formed in 2006, the Dirty Lungs are still standing--and they’re just as gritty and focused as ever.
Several tours and member changes have contributed to the constant evolution of their sound. The Birmingham-staple garage-surf outfit has continuously reinvented itself and now moves forward as a four piece. They’ve shared the stage with bands such as British Sea Power, Jacuzzi Boys, The Clientele, and many others. This summer they prepare to release their Communicating Vessels debut.
Their new record is not, by any means, the archetypical Nirvana-esque rehashing of an old Kinks record that seems to egress from every garage in America these days. The influences beneath Dirty Lungs are indeed abounding, and Mitchell’s vocals are the force that unites them all.
To compare Dirty Lungs to any particular album would be unfair--their latest release is an extension of their own sound reinforced by a focused exploration into new musical realms. Produced and Engineered by Michael Shackelford (studiophonic) with mixing by Lynn Bridges, they assured the band’s music would leave listeners anxiously anticipating the future of this long-standing Birmingham band.
