Dr. Dog is out supporting their seventh LP, Be The Void, (out now via ANTI-Records and can be streamed here) and to that end, the group dropped by Conan for a rendition of “That Old Black Hole”.
The new record strikes me as much better than their last, Shame Shame. It somehow manages to capture that raw energy of their live shows, while still being very polished. The band has always excelled with the interplay between Beatles-esque pop songs full of soaring harmonies and the darker, bombastic, psychedelic songs.
“The Old Black Hole” starts out like the former and crescendos fittingly into the latter. [via The Audio Perv]
