Apparently, I’m not the first to fall for The Dimes and the odds that I’ll be the last are slim. When a band makes such lighthearted, happiness-inducing folk pop like this it’s hard to imagine they won’t have many friends…
The Dimes (of Boston, they who write songs of Paul Revere and address them to Sarah Palin) brag of making folk pop you can revel in and while a braggart would normally be off-putting, that just isn’t so when they speak the truth. The King Can Drink… is catchy, infinitely sing-along-able, and full of banjo and bells. In short, I dig it.
