Hailing from Memphis, TN, the Dirty Streets are a throwback to the good old days of soulful, pre-punk blues and psych rock. Formed in 2006, Justin Toland (guitar/vocals), Thomas Storz (bass), and Andrew Denham (drums) found themselves brought together by a shared love of classic acts like MC5, Humble Pie, and Deep Purple. The other elements of soul and heavy psych are brought into the mixture to only further reveal a vast sea of influences. Together, the trio makes a kind of revivalist rock that feels retro without seeming fake, adding enough of their own sweat and soul into their blues to make the music seem genuine. After years of playing shows, the band released the full-length, Portrait of a Man, in 2009 followed by their 2011 album Movements. (soulpatch music)
