Paul Pfau & The Dimestore Band - 7
I fell out of the Maryland/DC local music scene at the end of college. My favorite bands all dissolved over time, mostly due to the band members all trading the uncertainty of a music career for a degree (which is one hell of a sensible decision to make, by the way). The ones who stuck around tended to stall out and fall apart for all the usual reasons a band calls it quits. It wasn’t until I caught a funk-filled performance from Paul Pfau & The Dimestore Band that I decided that local music still has life left in it. Their new release, 7, showcases—you guessed it—seven rolling, grooving tracks that deserve some of that coveted space still remaining on your iPod.
