The Dt's have damn near perfected the art of the tuff n’ tight soul-charged record that leaves you wantin' more. Filthy Habits is the latest ten-track dose of dirty rock n' soul shakedowns from Bellingham, Washington's hard soul hits quad, The DT's. This is the band's third full length, the second of all original material, and it combines all the best elements of their first two releases: all the hard soul get down of last year’s Nice 'N' Ruff, and all the hot n' sweaty hard rock energy of their debut slab, Hard Fixed. Filthy Habits raises the bar with a swagger and a smile… Raw Power meets Soul Power, Baby!

Recorded at MARS Studios with knob-kings Captain Jack Endino (who recorded Nice “N' Ruff) and Johnny Sangster (Mudhoney, Gas Huffer, The Briefs, The Makers) the Dt's stalked out with ten electrifying new tracks, thirty-two minutes of hip-shakin' hard soul satisfaction supreme. “Filthy Habits” kicks off raw and gritty, tough and pretty with “April Holeso”, and that intensity never lets up. “Turn Loose” is an out and out four on the floor rocker, “Red Eye” and “Crowfinger” are dangerous slow burners (but the heat is kept on high) and “Sweet Words” adds some sweet Stax-style keyboard infused groove to the mix, while the instrumental “Star Time” plays it like a James Brown future shock show entrance jam. Diana Young-Blanchard's voice is strong, sexy and soulful (imagine Tina Turner and Bon Scott's most pissed off bastard love child in heat), and her performance on this album is nothing short of epic. More proof positive as to why she was named one of the best voices in rock by Spain’s Popular One magazine.

Dave Crider's guitar (of Mono Men & Estrus Records fame) hits like a brazen bare-knuckled streetfighter on a late night Beale Street gin binge, while rhythm-men Scott Greene and Phil Carter keep time like two meth-soaked metronomes. “Hard Fixed”, “Nice 'N' Ruff”, and now the Dt's are back with “Filthy Habits”, the third installment in the Dt's ongoing testimonial of rock n' soul snakebite.

Filthy Habits? Yeah, the DT's got 'em…and bad never sounded so good.
