Philadelphia band Dr. Dog reincarnates golden doo-wop vibes and Top 40 radio when Dick Clark was still a fresh young face on the scene. Like city-mates Marah, the group pens scrappy, trend-oblivious tunes with guiltless Beatles, Beach Boys and Zombies shout outs. The group's catalog has largely favored lo-fi home recordings on vintage tape machines, an aesthetic that sounded perfectly executed on 2007's "We All Belong." A national tour supporting Wilco introduced Dr. Dog to new audiences; a new LP titled "Fate" is expected in July.
