Dirty Gold’s California Sunrise. The best summer song of 2011? [new mp3]

by oz on April 6, 2011

We first mentioned Dirty Gold back in early February after seeing a video for “California Sunrise.” The band has just released an mp3 for the same song just in time for the summer. If you are a fan of Surfer Blood and The Generationals (my favorite summer album of 2009), go ahead and reserve a spot on your summer party playlist for this one. As we stated before:

This teenage two-piece from San Diego open the song with the sound of seagulls and quickly gives way to an intoxicating mix of surf rock guitar riffs, afrobeat percussion, and vocals that evoke summer…

Dirty Gold is releasing their Roar EP on April 12th via Autumn Tone Records.

Love it! In the mood to go surf now. If you like them, you’ll love this band Town Town’s YouTube

This is a great song, but it has been out for awhile now. It was one of my top songs of 2010, but I wouldn’t mind it making a comeback for the summer. 🙂

Well, aren’t you special Mike McGee?

Mr. McGee: Very impressive, in fact, as the single on iTunes shows a release date of January 18, 2011, and an EP release date of April 12, 2011.

Mike is being a douche, but the song was out in 2010 and on BIRP in November 2010. I will never understand the fascination with who discovered a song first. Unless you wrote it, you’re just another fan.
