DIAMOND RUGS - GIMME A BEER

First Spin: Grab Indie-Rock Supergroup Diamond Rugs’ ‘Gimme a Beer’

Even if you couldn’t understand a word John McCauley sings on “Gimme a Beer,” the song’s boozy bonhomie would give you a clue as to its title. The horn-abetted rocker is the ragged-but-right first official single from Diamond Rugs, an indie-rock supergroup consisting of Deer Tick frontman McCauley, his DT keyboardist-saxophonist bandmate Robbie Crowell, Black Lips guitarist Ian Saint Pé, Los Lobos sax-man Steve Berlin, singer-guitarist Hardy Morris of Dead Confederate, and drummer Bryan Dufresne of Rhode Island synth-punks Six Finger Satellite.

"Gimme a Beer" is probably closer to Deer Tick’s exuberant country-rock than the rest of Diamond Rugs’ constituent parts, though fans of each should find something to like on the band’s rowdy self-titled debut, due April 24 on Partisan records.
