    Tight New Rock Band: "Dirty Honey."

    I had never heard these guys before and my friend shared them, these guys are tight! I'm a little jealous of that name too.

    A little AC/DC and Guns N' Roses vibe. The singer sounds like Robert Mason and Ray Gillen. Love it.


    This chorus is perfect.


    Very Guns N' Roses like.

    Well. This was just too good.



    And I'm usually not into covers. Aerosmith's "Last Child."

      I liked the cover better than the originals. Too much polish on all of it for me, honestly. This type of music needs to be a little more raw and less meticulously engineered.

      They're talented but their stuff has no life because the production is just way too perfect. It's like djent.

        I usually dig stuff like this, but just wasn’t feelin’ it. Reminds me of the Black Crowes...and I do not like the Black Crowes. However, I’ll keep this in my back pocket for my country/southern rock/classic rock friends who havent liked any new music since Skynyrd’s plane went down. Also...love the album cover/logo. I dabble in graphic design and for a band of this style, that shit is perfect.

          I get what you're saying. A lot of the "character" can get lost and it's not as raw as per se "Rocks."
          But I still dig it for what it is. Love the vocalist more than anything.

          Funny. All the Black Crowes stuff I've ever heard, I've not enjoyed.

          Hahaha. They should be listening to Blackberry Smoke then.

          Right? They couldn't have come up with a better logo and name for a rock band. Solid.

            That first video sounds a lot like the Black Crowes, but the rest reminded me more of Great White. It's all very catchy, and I've heard worse from recent bands trying to inhabit this territory.

            It goes back to a melange of Rod Stewart/The Faces, Aerosmith, and the Stones. What the second and third generation versions don't have is the greasiness and devil-may-care attitude of the originals. That's probably one of those things you had to be there in order to have.

              Sounds like a fucking Gap commercial.

              Blackberry Smoke......Dirty Honey.....Dead Daisies

              Gotta pick a plant or substance produced by a plant and then make it eDgY. Instant corporate Greta Van Fleet cash in.

              I bet the people that work at this bands local thrift store contemplate suicide whenever they come in to get their newest trying too hard neo bohemian vintage stevie nicks shawls.

              Besides, Honey is historically used as an antiobiotic and an embalming agent and is one of the ingredients in ambrosia, the mystical substance in Greek mythology that confers immortality upon the consumer, so the name is just kind of stupid.

              Sounds like the elevator muzak version of Nazareth for menopausal women. Just listen to Nazareth, Nazareth rule.

                It's because bands like this have two criteria; A) Sound as groan inducingly retro as possible B) Appeal to a demographic known as "Nickelback fans who fancy themselves as modern hippies" for airplay, or rather youtube play.

                And the two are like, super opposed in a lot of respects.

                The guitar tone is trying to sound as "real '70s gear" as possible, but there is literally no noise. All the drums are modern, and the snare wires are tight for that Nickelback sound.

                They didn't even go for a contrived "guitar feeding back because it is plugged in and they walk into the room and pick up their instruments and it is the perfect video" intro.

                Fuzzed out '70s guitar with all the actual fuzz removed. My favorite. Dudes could learn something from Matt "What's a noise gate?" Pike.

                This is what the kind of guitar sound they are trying to cop in a Nickelback context sounds like "real".

                  It really is, spot on.

                    One their songs, "Rolling 7"(?), is constantly on the radio. I always think "Holy shit, this really is a big collage of stolen ideas".
                    It is top produced (too polished for me), extremely well executed, but even though all the components are there - it lacks ....i don't know...everything? Nothing grabs me here.

                      I listened to the 2nd vid and "Last Child", I'd check out more of them. When listening to that 2nd tune I thought, "This sounds like 70's Aerosmith with Robert Plant/Bon Scott singing". I dig this more than what I've heard from Greta Van Fleet.

                        It has no soul.

                          Also the vocalist sounds more like the Kingdom Come dude than the actual person he's trying to emulate.

                            As much as I do like it. I'd probably would agree to an extent with that.

                            I don't hear them "going for it" so to speak like other bands.

                            It's no Van Halen 1 or Rocks that's for sure.

                              Yeah sorry, I'm not intentionally trying to poop on your thread, that's Noodles' job.

                              If you haven't heard them before (I assume you have though) and can put aside the 80's production, this is probably something you'll dig:



                              I like Zep worship as much as the next guy, especially when it's hairy.

                                It's one of those bands where you just know in the beginning there were two members plotting their future success and one was like, "You know what we need?"

                                And the question just hangs there a little bit. What are they going to say? Actual music they have written, a bassist and a drummer, a place to rehearse?

                                Nope.

                                The dude is like, "We need a manager. And wardrobe."

                                And the other dude says, "Exactly bro."

                                It's a contrived insult because it's a punchline due to overuse by self righteous underground types (checking in), but it is the definition of corporate trash rock. It's just a bunch of inoffensive songs about having a good time.

                                The video is just a pretty girl taking a road trip or some shit. The most generic corporate trash rock paint by numbers video of all time.

                                Unless if your band is Immortal or an OG 80s metal NWOBHM type thing or it's a core part of the art like King Diamond, I don't listen to bands that require a dress code solely for the purpose of making the band a cohesive sellable unit. I call it "The Barney Greenway code of listening to cool music"



                                These dudes probably all have nicknames in quotes between their first and last name they gave themselves. Dress code bands making up their own "cool sounding" nicknames are the worst. Most nicknames have really uncool stories, you just have to make the nickname someone else gave you that stuck cool. Like Lemmy, whose name is literally based on his obnoxious habit when he was younger of asking to be leant money, or Piggy from Voivod, or Geezer Butler.

                                If someone has a cool sounding nickname they obviously gave themselves, there is a 99% chance they are a fucking poser. Occasionally there are people like Slash or whatever who supposedly got their cool nicknames from someone else, but that's the exception, and not the rule.

                                  I like what I’ve heard from them just on the radio....they play the shit out of them. Catchy stuff.

                                      You are on the money. I don't know the whole story.

                                      But I know the guitarist and singer started the band.
                                      They mention their manager several times.
