Springfield, Missouri’s Dirt Nap is the fucking perfect way to end summer; scuzzy fun garage rock gassed up on cheap beer and a knack for taking the piss outta themselves. With Labor Day fast approaching you might wonder…what sort of soundtrack should I put together for grilling hot dogs and huffing American Spirits while guzzling PBR in a vintage band tee? Dirt Nap, you idiots.
The self-proclaimed river punks found a perfect home on Rough Beast Records, a label looking to keep garage alive, one sweaty DIY release at a time. Midwest surf punk is the ultimate oxymoron, and Dirt Nap play it for all it’s worth. Imagine The Soft Pack minus the San Diego shine, or FIDLAR with less cocaine.
