Dr. Dog

No, this is not the name of a veterinarian. It's not the name of some type of sell ,though I do think the band would like if you bought their newest compilation album "Passed Away, Vol. 1" which was released 2 days ago on March 4th. The band, Dr. Dog began in 1999,localized in Philadelphia. Their first album "The Psychedelic Swamp" was a self-produced work and now 8 years later they released 4 original albums, 1 EP, and 1 compilation album. Most were produced by Park the Van which was established with Dr.Dog's "Easy Beat" release in 2004.

I,myself just heard of the band less than 48 hours ago. With the laid back mood in their music The group also seems to know how to have an original feel to themselves which always makes me a fan of a band. From their 't' nicknames each member has such as "Taxi" and "Text" to their music the group has a unique almost rustic feel. So what's next for these psychedelic musicians? after a show in Clewiston,Florida at the Langerado Music Festival on March 8th they will be off to shows in Alabama then Louisiana. Check out their site for more shows and details:
