Dirty Heads Essentials

Dirty Heads Essentials

California's Dirty Heads have made a strong claim as inheritors of Sublime's laidback legacy. Founded in 2006 by co-vocalists Jared "Dirty J" Watson and Dustin "Duddy B" Bushnell, the band concoct a feel-good cocktail of alt-rock, reggae, ska and hip-hop. It's a mix that allows them to fully let loose on swaying beach grooves ("Cabin By the Sea") before winding back up with gritty hip-hop attacks ("Burn Slow"). Their potency increases alongside guests like Slash—on the choppy, Beastie Boys-esque "Check the Level"—and Rome Ramirez, who helps give "Lay Me Down" its ultra-chill flow.
