.DC I is the debut album in a series of EPs to be released in 2011 by singer-songwriter Dre Carlan. Straight-forward guitars set an acoustic tone with punk-influenced flourishes.

Press for .DC I:

" ‘.DC I’ strives to keep a classic punk vibe while also catering to the softer, quieter sides of that same angst." - House of Locals

"Without percussion, there's a vulnerability to his sound; his voice holds a meloancholic tragedy- almost as if he were mourning a loss of relationship, thought, or possession." - Drop Me in the Middle (forgettinganna.blogspot.com/2011/02/detroit-mis-dre-carlan-debuts-solo-work.html)

"This is the music box inside a seashell side of punk rock and no, no one can tell me that side of punk rock doesn't exist cause I just heard it." - Punk Globe

"Using nothing but his guitar, Carlan makes indie acoustic songs that are comparable to those of Lydia or Copeland. Although these songs are calm and easy on the ears, you can't help but notice the emotion in the songs." - Muzik Discovery

"As for comparisons, I kinda hear THE PALE and some early BRIGHT EYES. Carlan’s voice has a bit of trembling to it, but in a convincing and not fake manner. Check it out." - PastePunk
