iTunes Editors’ Notes

The Brooklyn–based Dirty Fences are one of a very few bands playing '70s punk with a classic New York City flavor. Sure, there are tons of modern acts aping The Ramones and The New York Dolls, but Dirty Fences sound like they might have actually shared the stage with those punk pioneers. Their 2013 album Too High to Cross takes an unapologetically retro approach to songwriting, production, and attitude, starting with the opening “Kilsythe,” which somehow sounds like a young Ace Frehley singing for the Funhouse-era Stooges. “All I Want” and “What’s That Strange” display an uncanny talent for writing the kinds of catchy songs that get stuck in your head for days on end. Where other Big Apple bands like The Strokes and Stalkers tap into various vestiges of East Coast punk, Dirty Fences take on the genre without any modern-day anachronisms. Only two of the 11 songs here reach the three-minute mark. At just less than two minutes, “Heaven Is Tonight” is the album’s shortest song, but it’s loaded with more barbed hooks and melodies than anything else.

Customer Reviews

buy this album or the terrorist will win

Even better than their debut EP

Dirty Fences' first eponymous EP was delicious, but over far too quickly. Too High to Kross remedies that situation perfectly. It's really hard to shoehorn them into just one genre, but they've got old-school punk flavor throughout this awesome rock and roll record and their melodies are killer.

Buy the album. Support a good band.

Love the dirty fences! Hope to hear at least a couple more great albums from em!
