DIRTY PANTIES – “I am a Robot” by Mindy McCall edited by Devin McAlister
Label: Squidhat Records (2012)
Overall Rating: 3.5/5
Deep from the depths of the Las Vegas arises the 4 headed beast known as The Dirty Panties who just released their debut album entitled “I am a Robot” in 2012.
I always listen to the opening track extremely carefully. It’s the opening track the band or artists has selected to hit your ears first and foremost. The opening track “Congighted” sets the stage rather well for this CD. It was a great intro piece that stuck in my head and had me eager for what lied ahead. All in all the whole CD is brilliantly delivered with a powerful Punk Rock, guitar driven texture with songs that hit hard and has serious staying power. Music will remind you of Babes in Toyland, 7 Year Bitch, Lunachicks and even Hole. To be honest I can’t say enough about this bands overall signature sound. Their bio describes it best: “The Dirty Panties represent a fresh new voice in modern punk and present a strong message that’s aggressive, angry, indy music should not be gender based.’ Well Played. “I am a Robot” manages to capture lighting in a bottle and is very loud, in your face sound and reckless. Each piece is real, not so overly- corporate sounding and very defiant in nature. The Dirty Panties have a sound that favors the late 90’s Alternative Rock movement but with a modern new punk rock feel. They will also remind me of a variety of bands from the 80’s in the hey day of the Punk Rock movement like the Runaways. They have a new sound but the spirit remains the same. I’ve never heard a new band sound so fresh. In other words Rock n Roll and Punk needs more bands like “Dirty Panties” immediately. The songs that stuck with me the most were “Cheers”, “Undefeated” and “Wet”.
I don’t really care for the band name. It could work against the band on off nights – lol.

Final Word: If there was one word I would use to describe Dirty Panties it would be attitude. This CD will simply make you want to break up with your dead end boyfriend, pour coffee in your bosses lap or go out and start a revolution of your own. In close Dirty Panties deliver the goods – in so many different and unique ways and proves females can rock the house once again.
