McGUFF AND THE DUMPSTER FIRES – ‘Trip Gone Wrong’ EP

McGUFF AND THE DUMPSTER FIRES – Trip Gone Wrong

MDFOhio band, McGuff and the Dumpster Fires have announced the release of their explosive third album on December 7th, entitled Trip Gone Wrong. The six-song EP features original music and collaborations with several other artists from across the region.

The band formed in 2012 out of Dayton, OH and have become a rising name in the Ohio music scene.

Led by Taylor and Emily McGuff, their shared roles as lead vocalists bring a broad range of styles to their songwriting. The EP opens with Too Pretty where a harmonica flatters to deceive before the song kicks into full gear with strong drums, melodic female vocal that soars with power, brass section and then restrained verses creating a punk/country/Americana blend that works so well!

On Bank Vault some meaty riffs and pounding drums open up a track that throttles back the guitars to distant licks with a bluesy edge as those strong as hell female vocals blend Joan Jett with Janis Joplin whereas the title track, Trip Gone Wrong blends an eclectic set of sounds from jazzy guitars to full throttle punk rock riffs, heavy metal vocals with folky vocals and changes to tempo and rhythm that keep the listener intrigued and a little on edge!

The fourth track, Brinkmanship has a spaghetti western punk feel replete with whistle introduction and marching beat supported by jangling guitars to craft an epic storytelling track that brings in the male/female duelling vocals and then Skywalker explodes into a rocking and rolling mosh pit pleaser with great hooks and melodies and, oh, those vocals!!!

The EP concludes with Yellow Brick Hole, a four-minute plus bass driven roiling and rocking track that veers into heavy metal territory with wailing vocals, power chords and serrated riffs all competing for your attention as MDF bring this one home with aplomb…great stuff!!!
