CD Review: The Dirty Heads Relax In Their "Cabin By The Sea"

Southern California rockers The Dirty Heads return with a brand-new album entitled “Cabin By The Sea.” This album follows the band’s breakthrough 2008 release “Any Port In A Storm” which established the band’s laid-back, reggae/rock sound. The new album was produced by Mario C. (Beastie Boys) and will be released on June 19 through Five Seven Music.

The acoustic “Intro” relaxes you as you drift into the band’s island/reggae title song “Cabin By The Sea.” The song is the perfect soundtrack to those mellow summer nights. The band adds a bit of hip-hop swagger into their vocals with “Disguise,” before heading into the 311-style of the album’s first single “Spread Too Thin.” The harmonizing on “Your Love” is like a drug that you can’t get enough of. The band’s hip-hop antics return in “Mongo Push” and in “Hipster” as the beats becomes so infectious that you can’t help but move. The Dirty Heads pack this album with over an hour’s worth of funky reggae beats that definitely needs to be part of your soundtrack this summer. The album closes with “Love Letters” that is an acoustic island jam the just eases your worries away.

The Dirty Heads will be heading out on the road in July traveling up the east coast before heading west in August and September. Please visit the band’s website ( for a complete list of tour dates and information.
