It's always exciting to discover a really good band that we haven't heard before.
We recently caught a show where Dirty Purple, a group of five young women from suburban Philadelphia, opened for veteran prog-rockers Crack the Sky.
Dirty Purple describes itself as alternative rock, or (in a recent tweet) "ladyemo." Their music has an intricate quality that puts it a cut above a lot of other alt/rock/emo outfits.
We've added "No Explanation" from their latest EP, Settle, to our New Music Bin this week, and you'll hear other tracks from them now and then in our Marvelous Mixture of Music.
