Dirty on Purpose

Wednesday, August 9, at Hailey's

This Brooklyn quartet's name conjures images of the elegantly wasted neo-garage acts of NewYork yore: Can't you see the Strokes untucking their custom-tailored shirts to look dirty on purpose? In fact, DOP plays sprawling neo-shoegaze fuzz-pop anthems that recall Yo La Tengo or Mercury Rev before they began trying to sound like the score from some Disney classic; the dirt in question has less to do with the members' mussed appearances than with the noise-smudged guitars that smother on Hallelujah Sirens, the band's appealingly shaggy debut. Expect that noise to occupy even more of the band's sound on stage.
