The Dimes

BandRockPop

Wildly melodic and inherently quirky, The Dimes’ sunny day indie-pop is born of the same Northwest loins as The Decemberists, The Shins, Death Cab for Cutie, Modest Mouse and even recent Austin-to-Portland transplants, Spoon.

Biography

At first taste, The Dimes may remind you of a piece of peppermint candy you found in the pocket of an old sweater that’s been hiding in the back of your closet for sometime. Initially you hesitate, but then you take a bite and suddenly your mouth is exploding with a cool, fresh, minty flavor that makes you feel like you just brushed your teeth.

Known for unexpected outbreaks of foot stomping and hand clapping at their live shows, early reviews are gushing with admiration for the new album, The Silent Generation, including critical acclaim from SPIN Magazine, Magnet Magazine, USA Today, MTV.com, NPR, The Oregonian, New York’s The Big Takeover, and dozens of popular music blogs on the web. The Silent Generation has soared on college radio nationally; debuting on CMJ’s (College Music Journal) first Top 200 chart of 2008 at #37 and is still performing strong!
