Dirty Streets - White Horse

Dirty Streets aim high on their fourth album, shooting for a heavy retro blues rock sound a la Free, Bad Company and Led Zeppelin. There’s no shame in admitting they don’t quite hit those sanctified heights, as they’ve made a fine album that rocks steadily from start to finish.

Highlights include the relentless groove of Accents, the oh-so-simple riff of Think Twice and it’s funky-catchy chorus, the Paul Rodgers-alike Good Kind Of Woman, the Led Zep III pastoral twang of The Voices and the rocking Zep riffing of Plain.

At just 36 minutes long, White Horse wastes no time, and there’s not an ounce of fat on the record: the trio sound well-honed from live performance and jamming, and the album sounds like it was recorded on analogue tape pretty much live in the studio, which bassist Thomas Storz, drummer Andrew Denham and guitarist-singer Justin Toland all giving each song exactly what it needs.
