iTunes Review

Mixing ska with hip-hop and rock might not seem like a good idea on paper, but the Huntington Beach, Calif.–based The Dirty Heads are adept at the combination. Their second album, Cabin by the Sea, begins with “Arrival," a summery acoustic serenade replete with seagull sounds in the background. The title track bounces with a mellow reggae groove before “Disguise” ushers in clouded rhymes over looped mariachi horns. A few notable musicians make guest appearances. Ky-Mani Marley (the only son of Bob Marley and ping-pong champion Anita Belnavis) is featured on the traditional-tinged “Your Love.” His slightly raspy inflections hauntingly recall his late father's. Rome from Sublime turns up in the funky rap-rocker “Mongo Push,” a catchy and danceable song that muses on the improper way to push down the street on a skateboard. Of course nobody can rhyme like hip-hop pioneer Del the Funky Homosapien, whose unmistakable lyrical attack blows “Smoke Rings” into the next level.

Cabin by the sea

This band has came such a long way. You can hear the improvement while listening. This album is amazing, best original band you can find!

DIrty Heads fan for life

soo original..

I've never been able to throw on a record and just listen to it non stop. New album was totally worth the wait. Every time I get in my jeep, I've got my DH playing. If you haven't heard the Dirty Heads, you need to give em a real good listen.

#1, It's impossible to not get your head goin.
#2, This band just melts away the tension from the day it's so damn chill.

I don't know if DH will ever get the cred they truly deserve for what they're doing. I think most of the population doesn't know enough on reggae-hiphop-rock. You guys have got something amazing though.

Thanks boys!


Downloading now. Haven't listened yet. But how could it not be awesome.


Formed: 2003 in Huntington Beach, CA

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Following in the footsteps of their California brothers Sublime, Huntington Beach’s Dirty Heads mix hip-hop, reggae, and rock along with that laid-back, South Cali attitude. The group formed in 2003 when punk rocker Dustin Bushnell (aka Duddy B) asked his friend, rapper Jared Watson (aka Dirty J) to collaborate on a project that would focus on positive vibes and infectious grooves. Watson added singing to his vocal skills, and with percussionist Jon Olazabal joining, an acoustic-trio-version of Dirty...
