The 10 Best Sets At Bonnaroo 2014

It has to be a toss-up between Coachella and Bonnaroo as to which is our most iconic currently active American festival. Growing up in Pennsylvania, I found the earlier years of Bonnaroo somewhat mythic — I had friends who would make summer trips down to the festival, and they talked about it like it wa… More »

Dr. Dog – “Distant Light” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

Philly retro pop-rockers Dr. Dog have built a large following slowly but steadily over the past decade, largely by keeping up a maniacal touring schedule. They’ve just embarked on another lengthy jaunt in support of last fall’s B-Room, and to herald that run of concerts, they’ve graced us with a new video from the album. More »

Dr. Dog – “Dreams” (Saint Rich Cover)

Philadelphia’s Dr. Dog and New York’s Saint Rich are two bands who play dusty, lived-in ’70s-style rock music. They’re going on tour together later this month, and they’re a natural match for each other. And to celebrate the upcoming tour, they’re also releasing a free-online joint EP called Casual Freefall. This is one of those… More »

Stream Dr. Dog Oh My Christmas Tree EP

Dr. Dog is the latest indie band to release a Christmas album; their new four-track Oh My Christmas Tree EP doesn’t vary much from their other albums, except for its holiday theme and occasional jingle-bell usage. Opener “Christmas Party” — about all the various attendees including “eggnog enhancers, tinsel-tossing cookie-cutting ribbon-tying types” — could be… More »

Dr. Dog – “Broken Heart” (Stereogum Premiere)

There’s been a cool trend in music videos this past year of re-appropriating found footage. Whether it was Rhye’s collection of vintage exotic dancers, or Man Man’s collage of B-movie footage, these create a beautifully nostalgic web of images. Here’s the lyric video for Dr. Dog’s lovely new song, “Broken Heart,” which captures footage from… More »

Watch Dr. Dog Play Yo Gabba Gabba!

My daughter once laughed uproariously for about 10 minutes straight after she heard the words “Dr. Dog” on the car radio; that band name, it turns out, is pretty much the height of three-year-old comedy. And now she’s got another reason to like them: The Philly band recently became the latest in a long line… More »

Dr. Dog – “The Truth”

Philly rock wailers Dr. Dog return this fall with B-Room, album number eight for the prolific band. The album takes inspiration from vintage soul music, and the first single and opening track “The Truth,” in particular, pulls from the orchestral ’70s R&B that remains one of Philadelphia’s all-time greatest musical exports. A new lyric video… More »

Dr. Dog – “Lonesome” Video

In Dr. Dog’s new video for “Lonesome,” the band members play vagrants who are kidnapped and forced into black hostage hoods, and then somebody throws food at them. It’s weird. Watch it below. More »

Dr. Dog – “Warrior Man” Video

Philly choogle-rock crew Dr. Dog’s new album Be The Void has already yielded one music video, for “That Old Black Hole.” Today, it gets another, for “Warrior Man.” In the clip, co-frontman Toby Leaman shows off a nifty new pseudo-fauxhawk while the band goes about the mundane business of being a band.

Dr. Dog – “That Old Black Hole” Video

Last November, we posted the first single from Dr. Dog’s new LP Be The Void called “That Old Black Hole,” a hooky rock song warmed by the band’s signature vintage vibe. Recently they posted the official video for the song, a fast-moving visual counterpart that features a dizzying array of costume and arrangement changes. Ha… More »

Dr. Dog – “That Old Black Hole” (Stereogum Premiere)

Philly retro rockers Dr. Dog are nothing if not consistent tweakers of their revivalist anthems; their last two LPs, Shame, Shame and Fate try on different hats, ranging from Beatles-y melodies to psyched out singalongs. Now Dr. Dog has been together for over a decade, and the formula still works on the first track from… More »

How Independent Rockers Celebrated #IndependenceDay

How did you celebrate July 4th? On a rooftop BBQ listening to our summer mix? Maybe you stayed in and watched old episodes of Hoarders on Roku? Maybe I stayed in and did that. There is no way to know. But all across this great country we do know there were fireworks to be see… More »
