Dr. Dog’s most recent album, B-Room, is still bouncing around a bit in my head. I haven’t yet decided how I feel about that. It’s just that, as with previous albums, the musical leaps this band makes often leave me waffling between two questions, “Are they trying too hard?” and “What if I listen to it one more time?”
Suggested Use: Put this in the rotation for your next low-lit porch party. It’s mellow rock rhythms and occasional upbeat melodies seem as if they would facilitate the consumption of adult beverages, slouching conversation, and impromptu dance-downs, if that’s the sort of thing you’re into.
