The Black Seeds have been kicking serious ass in the NZ music industry for a while now, and this latest album of theirs ‘Dust and Dirt’ will re-invent your love for the lads and their music.
The entire album has been created in a far more relaxed atmosphere which you can feel from the music. With the album including jam sessions that isn’t even written on pen and paper, it embraces that which true music is.
You have heard so many songs from The Black Seeds from “Cool Me Down” through to “Fire” and “So True“, but with the Dust and Dirt album, you will be hearing fresher and developed music that you wouldn’t have heard come from these guys, like the single ‘Pippy Pip‘.
The Black Seeds have finally managed to get their hot little hands on a primo rehersal room/recording room which means that they can take their sweet assed time to get the perfect sounds that they are wanting to achieve from tracks. They understand that they are percieved as a ‘live band’ so have tailored half of the songs on the album to cater to the live audiences needs, and the other half is to develop their own sound.
It’s an exciting release from The Black Seeds, and with their WORLDwide (yes, WORLDwide) tour coming just after the release, I am sure the rest of the world will embrace them as much as we have here in humble ol’ Aotearoa.
I would rate Dust and Dirt 8.4/10. I feel as though there should be a few more tracks to get me dancing around the room like a freak of nature. Granted, there are plenty included in the album, but I’m a little selfish and want more.
