“Drone can be a bit of a hard sell,” says Zac Bentz of Dirty Knobs. “The cliché is that it’s just one note played over and over, so I try to make my sets as dynamic and melodic as possible, while still keeping it monolithic and imposing.” He says various listeners have complimented the Dirty Knobs experience as “like the sound of a busy highway off in the distance,” “like being crushed by the ocean,” and “like it was recorded in Hell’s deepest skull-silo.” “Really,” he says, “I’m just trying to make as much horrible noise as possible.”
