"I love the Dimes. Those guys are doing some cool stuff." - Quentin Tarantino
"A sonic postcard to historic Boston, their record more than stands on its own as a great pop album, and Save Me Clara is it's shining jewel. All history classes should be this sweetly catchy and appealing!" - NPR
"The Dimes have done what most bands dream off, creating an alternate universe of warm pop music with a sunny vibe that will keep toes tapping and plaster a sunny smile on every listeners face." - Allmusic.com
released May 1, 2011
The Dimes are a folk-pop collective centered around guitarists/vocalists John Clay, Pierre Kaiser and Kelly Anne Masigat. The Portland, OR based band has released two full length albums and three EP’s to date on Timber Carnival Records.
Primarily known for their stellar songwriting, glowing harmonies and sixties-pop production, the band has broadened its sound of late, adding pedal steel, mandolin, harmonica and dobro to its recent recordings, evoking a sweeter California-country sound remeniscent of Neil Young’s Harvest recordings. Live, the group has grown to a 7-piece and has shared the stage with the likes of Liam Finn, Kathryn Calder (New Pornographers), The Head and the Heart, The Mother Hips and Todd Rundgren, amongst others.
Their most recent full length “The King Can Drink the Harbour Dry” was released in 2010 to strong critical acclaim from Spin, NPR, Allmusic and a host of online publications.
