Dr. Dog

I fell in love with Dr. Dog's 2007 album, 'We All Belong' -- a serene but often serious album that personified my life last summer. Comparisons could be drawn to the likes of The Beatles or The Beach Boys, with the band's 60's-era pop orchestration and wonderfully effective vocal melodies. Dr. Dog can't be backed into a corner however, evident especially with their new follow up album, 'Fate'. The nuances they pull off so well ascend them past ordinary fare, with vocals/lyrics that assert them as simply effective, rather than just simple.

Strongly recommend giving them a try, just a wonderfully intimate and tangible group to have in your collection.
