Blank Dogs – “Heat And Depression”

New York’s in the midst of some of the greatest weather in recent memory, but we know it’ll tip too far in one direction at some point, and Mike “Blank Dogs” Sniper is preparing us with his “Heat And Depression.” The surprisingly relaxed and almost playful dose of chilly new-wave is the opening track from the new four-song Phrases 12″, which he just released on his own Captured Tracks label.

Blank Dogs – “Heat And Depression”

The Phrases EP is out via Captured Tracks. CT also just released a limited-edition two-song Blank Dogs cassette, Leaves. Look for a new full-length, also via Captured Tracks, later this year. Live, Sniper’s joined by Pamela Garavano-Coolbaugh and Craig Mileski. See for yourself:
