Today The Record Stache is pleased to host the premiere of the music video for the just-released new single from Portland, Maine’s Kris Rodgers and the Dirty Gems.
“I Can Still Feel It” is the first single off the band’s upcoming album Still Dirty, which will be released on July 23 via Steven Van Zandt’s Wicked Cool Records.
Of the horn-accented and spirited track Rodgers says, “I wanted to make a video that matched the lighthearted energy of the song. This video is about letting everything go, and doing whatever makes you feel good. That initial excitement you experience discovering what you’re passionate about. The “wow” moment.”
With the feel of a rave-up a la ’70s-era J. Geils Band, he adds, “It’s got that classic sound but it’s new and fresh.”

Known as “rock n’ roll’s secret weapon,” band leader and front man Kris ‘Fingers’ Rodgers has been a recording and touring sideman in top touring garage rock and power pop acts like The Connection, Scott Sorry, The New Trocaderos, Bullet Proof Lovers, and Kurt Baker Band for years.
Rodgers first crossed paths with Van Zandt while playing in The Connection, who frequently ended up on Little Steven’s Underground Garage playlists. Fellow Maine native and ex-Connection member Kurt Baker has been a staple of the Wicked Cool roster since 2016, and Kris was the keyboardist for Baker’s lauded 2020 Wicked Cool album After Party.
