Dr. Dog - Easy Beat (2005)
The Philadelphia rock outfit Dr. Dog are an infectious mixture of coolness and certainty. This is the first album released officially allowing it to be described as "debut". The songs are varied in style except for the universal character of being recorded at home on an 8track. This gives the album a sense of antiquity, and nodding to the obvious influence of 60's/70's rock in sound and instrumentals, one must also appreciate the contemporary fix of disorganization and playfulness that satisfies our need for deconstruction. No Shit.
This album is highly recommended.
