The Dirty Nil - Cinnamon (Fat Wreck Chords) 
The Dirty Nil - Cinnamon

Release Date: 19th August 2014

Over the life span of this blog I have come across a number of excellent Canadian artists (not literally, that would have left me a dried husk of a man) but Ontario boys The Dirty Nil might well be one of my favourites. Forthcoming single 'Cinnamon' is one of their more traditionally melodic songs but it still retains the meaty heaviness of their grunge influences as the guitars thrive in the dirty, sleazy back alleys of downtown rock'n'rolls-ville. The vocals are straight from the Ramones school of elocution and the rhythm section is just as primal as you could hope for. These guys are fun in the worst kinda way which is why I like them just as much as I do.
