Foremost & Fair
The fractured, ballsy electric guitar pop from Dan DiMaggio’s outfit defines the form. Anybody who has been paying attention already knows that the Home Blitz name is a trademark of quality stamped on a handful of singles and EPs, as well as their jaw-dropping album on the Richie Records label. Foremost & Fair continues the trajectory of those records, achieving heights of fidelity, craft and fretwork dexterity that will continue to elude humbuggers, ham ’n’ eggers, and all the other-butter-users for years to come. DiMaggio and the Home Blitz name have rightfully been pegged to the tradition of prolific, idiosyncratic punk-qua-pop individualists, but if you’re looking for a convenient reference, you won’t find it in this little write-up. Home Blitz stands alone.
***"Perhaps DANIEL’s most accomplished recordings to date. Mastered loud and clear by JOHN GOLDEN. Full color / heavy weight pocket sleeves. If you buy one modern single this year...this be it!"— Almost Ready
Out Of Phase
***“Here’s the music that we’ve all been waiting for. It’s called Out of Phase and it’s the first full-length album from New Jersey’s HOME BLITZ. Negotiating this deal took all types of backroom dealing and late-night, unsavory tactics. Some egos may have been bruised, but the slugfest was worth the coup in welcoming this high-profile act to the RR//TT roster. Out of Phase forges a blazing thirtee- track romp through hard rock, power-pop, and even Oi territories, and it’s got some of the crispest licks since Meat Puppets II (or Priest’s Defenders of the Faith).”
