Dr. Dog Party Stream for Super Bowl Weekend
When I'm doing a review or interview, I'm sent new music via drop box or other links of varying secure measures. Some have strict instructions with log ins and passwords, while others implore me to share liberally on the web or otherwise. Recently I was assigned two reviews for BUST Magazine for Gotye's Making Mirrors (posted last Tuesday, link here) and Dr. Dog's Be the Void (due out February 7th). Gotye's PR people sent a quick link in an email to click and download the songs, easily throwing them into my iTunes for future listening. (Sometimes I need to type in the official track names but this time everything was listed in full!) Dr. Dog's people sent me a complicated link for a program that required downloading before even accessing the tunes on a years-old looking player. I gave a quick listen, but then I needed to really pay attention to the music and take notes as I've needed to do since my school days in order to learn anything new. It was so complicated I decided to search online to see if anyone was streaming it -- thank you Conan O'Brien and his Team Coco.
Dr. Dog's music is perfect for a Friday, especially Super Bowl weekend, so I decided to share it here as well as the video for a fave song off the last album. GO GIANTS!!!
