band of the week: The Dig

The Dig are from NY. At times their songs are easy breezy like early Oasis and elsewhere, they employ a sonic heaviness that would do Josh Homme proud. Their music is intelligent; not like math rock, but rather there is a deliberate delicacy in the arrangements that displays a fine grasp on what people need to hear. Employing the perfect amount of distortion; The Dig’s debut Electric Toys is a tad intoxicating, yet nearly completely composed. It’s the aural equivalent of an otherwise reserved person who is emboldened by a few drinks, not sedated by them. Like Blur delivered through a post-grunge lens, The Dig’s music is intrepid and fresh. Check it out.
