Track Of The Day: DISHPIT – ‘This Time’

A seething cacophony of crashing percussion, strung out guitar riffs and volatile vocals, Montreal-based trio DISHPIT have shared their new single ‘This Time’. Taken from their Steve Albini produced, self-titled debut album which is set for release on 12th March, the track is a corrosive new offering that rips through feelings of apathy with angst-ridden flair.

Led by Nora Kelly and Jed Stein, DISHPIT are inspired by the sounds of 90s riot grrrl, post punk and grunge. They’re here to challenge and disrupt the male dominated alternative music scene with their distinctive “freaky femme energy” and the abrasive sounds on ‘This Time’ are another potent example of how they’re dismantling these archaic barriers. Kelly’s crystalline vocals cut through the raucous guitar noises and cymbal smashes, as the track swells to its refreshingly raw conclusion.

DISHPIT finished recording their debut album with Albini in 2018, but issues with their record label and the cancellations and delays that have come with the Covid-19 pandemic meant their plans were temporarily put on hold. Now, the band are now finally ready to bring the visceral sounds of their debut record into the world and we can’t wait to hear it in full.

Track Of The Day: Dishpit – ‘Seven’

Foreboding bass lines and snarling vocals fuse together in angst-ridden style on Dishpit‘s latest single ‘Seven’. The track is accompanied by a DIY-style video that shows the band skulking about on the streets and messing around on the subway.

Formed of Nora (vocals/guitar), Jack (drums) and Brianna (bass/backing vocals), Dishpit take their name from the time they spent cleaning away the grease from dirty dishes in the establishment where they first met. It’s a fitting beginning for a band who’s sound is equal parts filthy and melodic.

Their new single ‘Seven’ has been described by Nora as “the most literal track from the album”. It’s about her previous lover who only told her “these things on speed”. Nora’s strung out guitar sounds and elongated groans perfectly reflect the frustration of the situation she found herself in, and Jack & Brianna’s rhythm section mirror the sense of longing and irritation.

We’re big fans of this Montreal-based trio, and we’re looking forward to hearing their debut album – produced by Steve Albini – once it’s fully fleshed out. Watch the video for ‘Seven’ below and follow Dishpit on Facebook for more updates.

Track Of The Day: Dish Pit – ‘Family Man’

“Do as I say, not as I do – I’m three times bigger than you” sneers Dish Pit‘s front-woman Nora on new track ‘Family Man’ – written from the perspective of a stereotypical “bully father”. The Montreal trio combine distorted guitars and aggressive drums to undermine the image of the seemingly perfect ‘Family Man’.

The new track is their first release since wowing crowds on their extensive summer UK tour, and the band are now set to return to the studio to record their debut album with the help of established producers Gordon Raphael (Strokes, Damon Albarn) and Steve Albini (Nirvana, Breeders).
