The Dirtbombs Cover Classic Techno on New LP, ‘Party Store’

    It appears that Detroit’s the Dirtbombs are looking to branch out after delivering four albums filled with soulful garage rock. While that sound remains slightly intact here, the quintet has opted to ditch the garage for the club as they cover classic Detroit techno tracks on their latest project. Party Store, which is due out in February of next year, isn’t the first time the band has covered hits of the past. Their 2001 album, Ultraglide in Black, was a collection of revamped 1960s and ’70s soul cuts. Party Store features nine tracks, including the above take on A Number of Names’ “Sharevari.”
