2010 Release, their 3rd release and another excellent addition to their growing catalog. After taking a 5 year break before releasing "Land" in mid-2009(back in stock!), Vinyl Candy return a year later with "The Dirty Third".
Vinyl Candy are not only principally inspired by Jellyfish, Imperial Drag, Kyle Vincent, Supertramp and The Candy Butchers, you get the sense on listening to this material that they live and breathe this music in every waking moment. Dedication to this type of pop art is more than casually noted. This is premium sugar-coated pop hookery, my friends. Despite not having a huge, major label project that the ambitions that artists driven by the art of the aforementioned bands would normally have, Vinyl Candy make more than due with what they have on this self-released long-lasting gem. It`s quite enthralling and picturesque in the portrait of classic sunny power pop. As Jellyfish were back in the early 90`s, Vinyl Candy is wonderfully out of step with what is happening in their present. But that makes Vinyl Candy`s work all the more bewitching and piquant.
Vinyl Candy takes you back to a time when the music was fresh, inviting and warm. Pulling even more influences from the Beach Boys, Beatles, Eagles, Supertramp, Queen, Steely Dan, Fleetwood Mac and many others, its safe to say Power-Pop has never been more alive. Vinyl Candy`s heavy musical orchestrations, coated with layers of harmonies, melody, and unique sound will quench your taste-buds like a new piece of sugary sweet bubble gum. Extremely Highly Recommended!!
