Dirt Farmer – “Woke Up A Little Punchy”

Dirt Farmer’s new album Satellites shows a fun, eclectic rock sound. Album highlights are numerous, with notable tracks including the driving brass-led “Better Decisions,” suave slice of Americana “Sweet Grass,” and the inventive twangy rocker “Woke Up A Little Punchy.” The latter is a particularly impressive showing, exuding a catchy and confident build-up toward the “every night,” hook, which features distorted guitar crunches amidst a vocal lead that keeps it cool. “Woke Up A Little Punchy” is a great embodiment of the band’s ability to craft contagious melodies within a suavely convincing rock-forward sound. “Sweet Grass” also emphasizes the band’s strengths, with numerous strong melodic twists and turns alongside the twinkling keys, chugging keys, and various backing vocal touches.

Stream “Sweet Grass” and the rest of Satellites below. The album is the third from Toronto-based musicians Scott Cryer and Rob MacDonald, collaborating across the Atlantic with Christer Bjorklund, from Gavle, Sweden.

“Woke Up A Little Punchy” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of January 2020’ Spotify playlist.
