Indie music has a place at every college radio station and that is why Dr. Dog is welcome at 88.1 The ‘Burg. The Philadelphia based group formed in 1999 had as many as 20 “honorary members” and their wide range of influences can be heard in their two EPs, one live album and seven studio albums.
The most recent Dr. Dog album Be The Void was released February 3rd 2012 and was followed up by the Wild Race EP in August of the same year. Album reviews for Be The Void were solid with consequenceofsound.net stating that “Like a fine wine, Dr. Dog gets better with age.” and Paste Magazine rated the album a 7.5.
Though sometimes categorized as “psychedelic rock” you can also hear folk, blues, soul, and bluegrass in their sound. We recommend checking out “Lonesome,” “How Long Must I Wait” and “Over Here, Over There” off the Be The Void album.
Dr. Dog will be co-headlining shows with Dawes on April 26th at Showbox at the Market in Seattle and April 28th at the Crystal Ballroom in Portland.
