Philadelphia indie act Dr. Dog combines straightforward pop hooks with an unabashed 1960s flare. With influences spanning from the Beach Boys to 90s cult classic Pavement, Dr. Dog uses their vast array of timeless inspirations to create something truly original. A band I can imagine would be best experienced live, in a hole-in-the-wall dive bar in LA.
Their latest album, Shame, Shame, is perhaps the best display of this unique blend. Songs like Shadow People and Stranger come across as instantly likable and vintage. Their quirky website, which you can visit here encompasses the band's playful, unapologetic, and all around under-appreciated feel.
