Hamilton rock band, The Dirty Nil, is getting set to release a new compilation album, Minimum R&B, through Dine Alone and Fat Wreck Chords. Including one unreleased song, a variety of 7″s, and their previously released Smite EP, the new record will be available on April 28. In the band’s words, the compilation was:
“fuelled by broken vintage fuzz pedals, the show television “destroyed in seconds”, girls night out wine, smashing reverb tanks with hammers, a small lake of black coffee, horrible recording conditions, general negligence, recording vocals naked, beer, blood, broken bones, broken instruments, broken ears, inescapable loudness, screaming, unresolved girl problems, exposed wiring, no pants, no shoes, making our producers drink more than they wanted to, and a dozen donuts.”
For those who want to get a taste of the upcoming album in a live setting, you can catch The Dirty Nil on tour with Billy Talent and Monster Truck across Canada from February 16 to March 6.

Hello, I’m Chloe from Montreal! I am a 26 year old McGill and Concordia graduate in physiology and psychology. While my career path has fallen more into the education field, music, reading, and writing remain three of my strongest passions. Despite this, I have been told more than once that I have the worst singing voice in the entire world. Because the life of a musician has not worked out for me, I instead attend concerts and write about them. Many of them. I have been known to overuse the word “favorite,” especially when talking about music.
