Dr. Dog: That Old Black Hole

Posted on

It’s hard to believe Dr. Dog has been around for over ten years now, but the Philly retro-rockers just keep rolling. The band, always known for their killer live show, has been fine-tuning their revivalist sound in the studio the past decade and posted a great effort in 2010 with Shame, Shame. Despite a relentless tour schedule in ’11, Dr. Dog has managed to produce a follow-up. Be The Void is the group’s sixth studio album and second on ANTI-. Check out a video for the album’s first single “That Old Black Hole” above and the new album art after the jump.

Dr. Dog: Nobody Knows Who You Are

As promised, Dr. Dog has just released another free track, “Nobody Knows Who You Are,” from their new double 7″. According to lead singer/guitarist Scott McMicken,

This song took several years to write itself. Then it was done in a split second. That’s the best. Like a hungry frog. Wait. Wait. Wait. Fly lightning! It goes to show you how easy it is to feel all right if you actually want to.

I’ve really been enjoying The Rolling Thunder Revue vibe of these new Dr. Dog tunes. The organ and harmonica are great touches and point to more good things down the road from these guys. Download “Nobody Knows Who You Are” below and catch a full tracklist of the upcoming 7″ release after the jump.

Dr. Dog: Shadow People

Posted on

Philadelphia psych-rockers Dr. Dog take their retro tag to the bank in their new video for “Shadow People.” Set in a old fashioned roller rink, the band sings the track to a bunch of senior citizens enjoying a free skate. The single probably wouldn’t be typical for a roller rink jukebox, but all of the old-timers seem to be enjoying themselves.

In other Dog news, the band is currently offering a stream of their latest album Shame, Shame (Anti-) over at their facebook page. If you share the page with a friend, you can get your hands on a free download of the brand spankin’ new track “Take Me Into Town.” According to their website, the group recorded three other songs this summer that they plan to give away for free over the next couple of months. Sounds good to me.

Make sure to catch the band on the road as they extend their massive Shame, Shame tour into the fall. Dates after the jump.
