The past few years have seen The Dirty Nil on a reckless crash course with stardom. Ever since the release of their first 7" in 2011, the band has begun to harness the raw, propulsive energy of their live show and channel that into a slew of 7"s, digital singles, a 10" EP and a shitload of positive buzz. Next in line for The Dirty Nil is the "Cinnamon b/w Guided By Vices" 7"; two songs layering feral, garage rock with uneasy, pop hooks, all assembled and reassembled to make your mind melt into fractured pieces. It's a perfect intro for those unfamiliar with the band and an apt continuation of a path they've been blazing; vocals ranging from melodic to violently frantic, backed up with unhinged screeching guitars, all sewn up with equal parts desperation and clever songwriting. Hold on tight. For fans of Nirvana, The Distillers and The Stooges.
