Album: Dying Is Fun
Label: Tricycle Records
Release Date: September 2, 2014

Dying Is Fun is Everyone Is Dirty’s first and only album out right now but that doesn’t mean that it’s lacking in any sense of the word. The band’s sound has been described as ”bedroom-tapes on bath-salts” and is said to be a surrealistic violin-shaped spaceship rock genre. The entire ten song album was self recorded and mixed at Donut Time Audio by the band’s own Christopher Daddio. The band itself formed in early 2013 out of Oakland and is highly notable for their frontwoman, Sivan Lioncub, and her outlandish electric-violin behaviors. The entire band is made up of Lioncub (violin), Christopher Daddio (guitar), Tony Sales (drums) and Tyler English (bass). Sivan is said to be the real attention grabber during their shows because of her incredible use of the violin as a captivating tool of self expression that wouldn’t want to be missed. Ironically, shortly after Dying Is Fun was released, Sivan became deathly ill due to a penicillin allergy and was hospitalized for several months. The band has said that Sivan has looked back on that time and feels that that the album was a foretelling for the illness she later suffered.

The band is hoping to release another album soon and already has plans to start a national tour. With any luck, this album will be full of just as much punky noise that really made the band have such a great sound as Dying Is Fun did. Some of the most recommended songs on the album to listen to would probably be “I’m Okay”, “Meltyface”, and “Mama, No!!!” Each song provides its own unique sound and textured lyrics. Hopefully we’ll be able to hear more of Everyone Is Dirty soon but for now, you have a great album to drown yourself in. Because if you’re going to die, why not make it fun?
