The Dirty Lungs
The Dirty Lungs
Heavyish Garageish Psych Rock from Birmingham AL

If you've spent any time in Birmingham, Alabama, you’ve seen a Dirty Lungs sticker slapped on something. Though the city’s musical landscape has changed dramatically since the band formed in 2006, the Dirty Lungs are still standing--and they’re just as gritty and focused as ever.
Several tours and member changes have contributed to the constant evolution of their sound. The Birmingham-staple garage-surf outfit has continuously reinvented itself and now moves forward as a four piece. They’ve shared the stage with bands such as British Sea Power, Jacuzzi Boys, The Clientele, and many others. This summer they prepare to release their Communicating Vessels debut.
Their new record is not, by any means, the archetypical Nirvana-esque rehashing of an old Kinks record that seems to egress from every garage in America these days. The influences beneath Dirty Lungs are indeed abounding, and Mitchell’s vocals are the force that unites them all.
To compare Dirty Lungs to any particular album would be unfair--their latest release is an extension of their own sound reinforced by a focused exploration into new musical realms. Produced and Engineered by Michael Shackelford (studiophonic) with mixing by Lynn Bridges, they assured the band’s music would leave listeners anxiously anticipating the future of this long-standing Birmingham band.

Shaheed and DJ Supreme
Shaheed and DJ Supreme
Communicating Vessels' recording artists Shaheed and DJ Supreme are one of hip hops' most consistent groups. Hailing from Birmingham, AL Shaheed and DJ Supreme don't fit the mold of most typical dirty south artists as they are practitioners of traditional boom-bap hip hop. They've already released two critcally acclaimed LPs (Health Wealth & Knowledge of Self and Scholar Warrior (The Remix Album) which showcases Shaheed's sharp lyrical prowess and DJ Supreme's soulful production. As a group, Shaheed and DJ Supreme has shared stages with Raekwon, DJ Shiftee, The Bodega Brovas and Stalley, as well as label mates The Green Seed. Their albums boast guest appearances from artists such as Akil the MC (of Jurassic 5), Amir Sulaiman, and W. Ellington Felton. Their highly anticipated 3rd LP Knowledge Rhythm and Understanding will be released soon on Communicating Vessels.
