Song Premiere: Dr. Dog - "Lonesome"
Dr. Dog are set to release their new album, Be the Void on Feb. 7 on Anti- Records. The album was recorded live in Meth Beach with two new members, drummer Eric Slick and guitarist/percussionist/electronics operator Dmitri Manos.
The band has said that the upcoming release is more a rough-around-the-edges rock album that’s more in tune with their earlier material, and many of the members found that to be pretty liberating.
“It was reminiscent of when we were starting out and were these fearless weirdoes in a basement, so confident and reckless and bold,” guitarist-vocalist Scott McMicken said.
The approach is clear on “Lonesome,” Be the Void’s opening cut. The track features slide-heavy, tube-warmed guitar tracks that complement McMicken’s bluesy melodies. Take a listen to the Be the Void cut below.
