Thee Emergency
Can You Dig It?
by Katie Sauro
08.20.06

Thee Emergency’s bratty-punk-for-grownups combines dirty garage rock with neo-soul and the bluesy stylings of Dita Vox, whose vocals can just as easily evoke a purring jazz nightclub starlet as a rock ‘n roll frontwoman. Her voice is pure and strong, but occasionally can be a little too intense, as is evident toward the end of one of the best songs—and one of the only ballads—on the album, “Cream.” But Thee Emergency keeps the slow songs to a minimum, veritably sticking to impassioned old school rock, grungy guitars and tambourine-laden tracks like the KEXP-approved “Girl You Should’ve Known,” and call to arms, “Get it Up,” culminating in an album that actually does their energetic live shows justice.
