Summer: it’s a time to get dirty and a time to shine. It’s only natural, then, that summertime 2021 will see the release of a collection of new songs capturing both sides of that spectrum: ‘Still Dirty,’ the rollicking Wicked Cool Records debut release from Portland, Maine’s Kris Rodgers & The Dirty Gems, which drops Friday, July 23.
Known as “rock n’ roll’s secret weapon”, band leader and front man Kris ‘Fingers’ Rodgers has been a recording & touring sideman in top touring garage rock and power pop acts like The Connection, Scott Sorry, The New Trocaderos, Bullet Proof Lovers, and Kurt Baker Band for years.
The fast-paced, horn-accented “I Can Still Feel It” is the band’s new single, with the feel of a rave-up a la ’70s-era J. Geils Band. “It’s got that classic sound but it’s new and fresh,” Kris remarks. He adds, “I Can Still Feel It is about that initial excitement you experience discovering what you’re passionate about. The “wow” moment.”
