Dire Con reviewed in Sonic Masala

Not only did Sonic Masala give the new Dire Con album a mostly favorable review, but also a lovely bonus nod to COP’s Urgency.  Additionally, they are featuring the track, “Wasted Youth,” in addition to “Pills.”  This is also the second reference in a review, basically dubbing this style of sound as “grunge.”  Noted!

Dire Con self titled EP available May 29th!

Born of warehouses built on stretches of land that are not quite Memphis, Dire Con is quintessentially modern, underground, southern rock.  Front man, Hamilton Ellis, brings forth songwriting chops in the vein of Neil Young, dented and bruised by Arrison Kirby’s gruff production, harkening back to Check Your Head era Beastie Boys.  

 This self-titled collection of songs reflects on the darker, grittier aspects of southern living.  It touches not on topics of American pride and confederate nostalgia, but a small town underbelly of drug abuse, secret lives and death. 

 This disc is the sixteenth release from the El Deth recording label.  It will be digitally available on Spotify, iTunes  and all other major online distributors on May 29th, 2011.

We have not yet officially announced the release of Dire Con’s self titled EP, but the single, “Pills,” seems to be getting some attention.  This week (which is maybe last week by the time I discovered this), the track got listed on the weekly Top 13 list at Advanced Demonology.  Flattering words, uniquely stated, accompanied.
