The Dirtbombs – Girl On The Carousel

Title: Girl On The Carousel

Artist: The Dirtbombs

Album: Ooey Gooey Chewy Ka-Blooey

Year: 2013

Genre: Indie, Pop, Indie Rock

The upcoming Ooey Gooey Chewy Ka-Blooey (out September 17 onIn The Red), discerning Calvin and Hobbes fans will note, is a reference to the inane bedtime story Calvin’s father loathed reading and re-reading. At any rate, “Girl On the Carousel” is a pleasingly tooth-rotting taste of Ka-Blooey; Collins’ voice goes high, sweet, and fey, and– good lord– an oboe wanders in, sweetly tootling away as “the horses go up and down.”
