It’s been a long time since classic rock legends such as The Rolling Stones, Tom Petty, Elvis Costello and John Mellencamp saturated airwaves with driving rhythm sections and instantly relatable lyrics. Frank Migliorelli and The Dirt Nappers’ new album The Things You Left Behind brings back those cherished memories of ‘70s and ‘80s rock ‘n roll. The record reminds us that a casual, direct and honest species of rock is alive and well.
Out of the small town Croton-on-Hudson in New York, the band has a twangy, bouncy sound and reiterative choruses in songs such as “Take It Back.” The title track “The Things You Left Behind” weaves dismal imagery into a minimalist sentimental soundscape. The album shines the most in the weary stripped-down acoustic strumming of “Vagabond Shoes”. The track features hand percussion, slide guitar, and no-frills lyrics.
Frank Migliorelli and The Dirt Nappers have received praise for their tunes from American Songwriter Magazine and Glide Magazine. Frank has been a finalist in top songwriting competitions and other members of the band have played with Gavin DeGraw, Southside Johnny and Steve Forbert. Their new album The Things You Left Behind is a must-listen for rock and country fans alike.
