Dikes Of Holland are a garage punk quintet to watch out for from Austin, Texas.
The band released their second album, Braindead USA, in July 2012 and I have to say that it’s a great record which grabs you from the opening song; the punchy, head nodding Streetwalker, and doesn’t let go till the last notes of album closer We Gotta Go.
Along the way you encounter taut rock songs that bristle with raw, sweat soaked energy and an abundance of delicious hooks. Songs like Meat Eater, Dirty San Franciscan & Future Eyes are prime examples that showcase the same. A couple of listens to Braindead USA and you’ll realise that the force is strong with the Dikes Of Holland.
Listen to a selection of tracks from the album and head to Bandcamp to listen to/buy the entire album.
