The Glasspack -- Dirty Women

THE GLASSPACK- Dirty Women (Small Stone Records)

Ugly, gritty, and blissfully unrefined rock & roll are what the Kentucky trio known as THE GLASSPACK bring full throttle with their latest album Dirty Women. Oozing with that unmistakable 70's stoner rock vibe, the album conjures images of mid-summer barbeque's and passing out on the side of the road in a trailer park. The guitars have a great tube-amp sound to them with the overdrive turned on high, backed by an awesome throbbing bass and tight drums. The vocals are also fuzzed out and delivered with plenty of piss 'n vinegar, while also being pretty melodic at times. Dirty Women delivers with a great authentic rock & roll feel, played by dudes who live it 100%.

The album also has plenty of pure blues moments, such as the intro to the opening track "Taming The Ram", before it runs ahead at breakneck speed in a sort of punky vein to get the ball rolling. "Fastback" on the contrary is an instrumental anchored by memorable vintage riffs and an absolutely soaring solo, one of the coolest parts on the album. "My Curse" and the excellently titled "Ice Cream, But No Reply" have more of that cool stoner-punk feel to it, reminding me especially of a couple tunes that could have easily been written by Southern California burnouts NEBULA or FU MANCHU. "Lot Lizard" brings out the classic saloon-style biker blues rock, with that kind of killer bass playing that just forces a smile onto your face, while the drumming kicks it up a notch on the intro to the doomy KYUSS-inspired desert rock of "Super Sport", another instrumental tune. More vintage ball-busting rock & roll comes out on "Play It Loud (With The Rock 'n Roll Outlaw)", before the album's opus "Louisiana Strawberry" arrives to stomp its big dirty boot all over the faces of anyone who thinks that WOLFMOTHER are the coolest thing to happen to rock since LED ZEPPELIN. 11 minutes of the purest rock & fucking roll laid down on tape this year, no doubt, complete with a gigantic oscillating guitar feedback ending. However the album does not end there, as "Farewell Little Girl" continues to tack runtime onto the record length with 9 minutes of sweet southern blues.

These guys know how to properly inject their SABBATH and SKYNYRD with enough STOOGES to really pack a mean punch. Probably the best thing to come out of the stoner rock world this year, impossibly recommended.
