Dr. Dog

The Philadelphia-based Dr. Dog are part of a long tradition of D.I.Y. pop oddballs who blend unapologetic '60s pop worship with lo-fi recording techniques and an apparent disregard for current trends. The group began as a part-time offshoot of the more traditional indie rock act Raccoon. Over the course of several years, guitarist Toby Leaman and drummer Scott McMicken found enough free time to record the casual, sprawling 35-track set The Psychedelic Swamp in a basement rehearsal space, finally self-releasing it in 2001. As Raccoon ended, McMicken and Leaman transformed Dr. Dog into a proper band, with McMicken on guitar and Leaman on bass (the two shared songwriting and vocals), as well as guitarist Doug O'Donnell, keyboard player Zach Miller, and drummer Juston Stens. This lineup recorded 2003's more focused and poppy Toothbrush, which -- like The Psychedelic Swamp -- received a low-key, self-distributed release.

When My Morning Jacket's Jim James, a friend of Leaman and McMicken from their Raccoon days, hand-picked Dr. Dog to open for his band on an East Coast tour, the band's almost nonexistent national profile began to rise. With O'Donnell replaced by former Raccoon bassist Andrew Jones and several Philadelphia friends making guest appearances, 2005's Easy Beat was picked up for distribution by the indie label National Parking. Following its release, the band toured again with My Morning Jacket and M. Ward and performed several well-received sets during the 2006 South by Southwest festival in Austin. The stopgap EP Takers and Leavers was released in September 2006 in advance of We All Belong, which arrived in early 2007.

Throughout the rest of that year, Dr. Dog began posting previously unreleased tracks on their website; the songs were later released as Passed Away, Vol. 1 in March 2008. In the summer of that same year, the group released Fate. Fate featured some of the band's most polished production to date. It also became Dr. Dog's highest charting album, peaking at number 86 on the Billboard 200 and earning positive reviews from outlets like Rolling Stone and Entertainment Weekly. After touring in support of the album, the group signed with the ANTI- record label and released 2010's Shame, Shame, a modern album that featured more guitars than the band's earlier work. Golden Boots member Dimitri Manos, who had played with the band on Easy Beat, joined up with the band as a full member, and made his first appearance on a full-length album in 2012 with the release of Be the Void early that year. Following the album, the band set to work building their own studio, a process that found the band refreshed enough to release another album, B-Room, in 2013. ~ Stewart Mason, Rovi

BONNAROOOOOO O 2014!!!!
and coastieluv, it IS an Architecture in Helsinki cover . As played by Dr. Dog isnt the same as written by Dr Dog. Get your facts straight homie. On that Heart It Races EP, its 4 different bands covering the same AIH original, Dr Dog being one of them. Just sayin....... . . . . . .
There is a vid on youtube from a show a couple years back where they do a 17min medley of the whole Easy Beat album in one stretch! Pretty awesome. Check it out, it's beautiful!!
Heart it races is my jam, i get the same butterflies when i listen to it as when i kissed my first girlfriend, no fuckiing kidding.

Don't read this because it actually works. You will get kissed on the nearest possible Friday by the love of your life. However if you do not post this to at least three songs you will die in 2 days. Now you've started reading this so don't stop. This is so scary put this on at least 5 songs in at least 143 minutes when if done press f6 and your lovers name will appear on the screen in big letters this is scary cuz it actually works.
It's hard to mirror any other time period in another one when creating music. I'm not sure they are trying to have the sound of 60's connotations I just think they feel inspired by it so it bleeds through in their music.
I apologize to many people here. I don't hear any 60's connotations in any of their songs. But, then again, I grew up on Beatles and 60's rock. and 60's Motown and country but, I can't really compare any of Dr. Dog's music to anything from the 60's. I think Dr. Dog's music is really original in sound in my opinion. I like it. It's a fresh sound.
Dr.Dog is a great band. At first it's kinda hard to get into some of the songs, if this is the case try listening to the full Album on a car ride. Personally my favorite is Be The Void, It has catchy lyrics you will find singing at random times, edgy rifts that are very 60's-like, and soul stirring passion to it. 85/100
this isn't a rip off of Architecture in Hellinski-- they didn't cover it, this is their song originally. If you notice when you see this song any where it says next to the name (As played by Dr. Dog) just saying.
Broken Heart. I LOVE THIS SONG. ONE OF MY VERY FAVORITES.. THANK YOU PANDORA FOR TURNING ME ON TO THIS BAND.
Feb 1st show in Philly was awesome!!! Played a lot of old tunes, including Oh Me Oh My, Easy Beat, Oh No, and a mostly instrumental version of Say Ahh! They did some instrument swapping on songs here and there too. Top notch as always
It's right, actually, sbauer. When they started with just the two of them as Raccoon, it was Scott on drums and Toby on guitar, they basically both played whatever tho. As you read on, it says the band grew and Scott went to guitar and Toby to bass
sbauer0
Toby Leaman is the bassist/voca l i s t and Scott McMicken is the guitarist/vo c a l i s t . *Cmon Pandora, this isnt the first bio you've goofed.
Or you COULD call it a 'cover', as its something virtually every band has done. PS Stoked for the Electric Factory show next saturday!!
