Free album release... The Dogs
“Stirrin’ up trouble like a mixing bowl.” Taken from their breakout “hit”, Dandy Lion Wine, these lyrics have begun to define The Dogs. This folk-rock outfit from Chicago, Illinois has played their fair share of clubs including Elbo Room, Lilly’s Bar, and Cal’s Bar, but they’ve become most known for their unannounced performances in outdoor parks that occasionally have resulted in their forced removal by local authorities.
After spending the summer gigging around the Midwest and self-recording, The Dogs just released their new and highly anticipated self-titled debut album. Though they got their start recording Phil-Ochs styled folk tunes into a four-track, their most recent endeavors draw heavily on the sounds of the Fleet Foxes, Espers, The Dodos, and Neil Young.
Although the band can boast upwards of 15 members on stage at a time, the group’s core consists of three members, James, Peter and Matt. With the release of their new album, The Dogs are sure to be rising stars on the indie rock scene. Check It Out!
