DR. DOG

Dr. Dog have always prided themselves on their lo-fi aesthetic, so it’s slightly odd that they worked with producer Rob Schnapf (Elliott Smith, The Vines) on their latest. Thankfully, the improved production enhances the band’s sound on harmony-rich songs like “Shadow People.” While Shame, Shame still teems with the band’s brand of psychedelia, confessional songs like “I Only Wear Blue” showcase a darker side, proving there is real emotion beneath the atonal guitar solos and space-age effects. “You could say that we’re alone but we’re lonely together,” the band intones on the unsettling “Jackie Wants a Black Eye”—and that sentiment is far more embracing than it is alienating.
