Show of the Week – Dr. Dog @ Minglewood Hall 02/01/11

Philadelphia psych/folk-rockers Dr. Dog will grace us here in town at Minglewood Hall on Tuesday, the 1st, continuing on their tour promoting their latest release, Shame Shame.

After opening for My Morning Jacket on tour in 2004, the band began getting some serious national exposure, letting everyone in on the hat-tip to 60’s psych rock coming from Philly. However, the new album is a bit different. Co-frontman/guitarist Scott McMicken says the band’s sixth full-length is a much more accurate representation of the band’s live show: lots of electric guitars. Dallas Observer writer Noah Bailey praises the record, saying it “delivers more of the same joyous exuberance that fans have come to expect, with 11 roller rink-ready AM-radio pop tunes that creep further into the recesses of your brain with every listen.” As for me, well, I dig it. The songs are great, the jams are ones everyone can enjoy, and the full-band harmonies are the beautiful cream cheese icing on the cake. McMicken’s vocals strike me as a mix of Wayne Coyne and Jeff Tweedy, aka awesome. I’ve yet to see them live, but one can imagine the songs translating for a very fun, sing-along kind of night. So freaking go see em!

Doors at 7, show at 8. The Head & the Heart will open along with Buried Beds.
