Album artwork for Dirt Buyer II by Dirt Buyer

Joe Sutkowski (Dirt Buyer)'s new album is a documentation of making it to the other side. Sutkowski grew up in New Jersey, and although he lives in Brooklyn now, he remains "an emo kid at heart," garnering inspiration from bands like My Chemical Romance and Muse, the latter of whose theatrical, dramatic performances inspired the band's own vocal-forward, soaring takes. Initially working together as a duo while Sutkowski and Ruben Radlauer (Model/Actriz) were at school in Berklee, the band's self-titled 2019 debut album was recorded on an iPhone in their practice room on just drums and guitar, and the quietly striking, nuanced stylings earned them accolades far beyond the "fake record label" the two made up to originally release their music.
