Shadow People by Dr. Dog

One album that I didn’t realize was coming out was Shame, Shame from the amazing Dr. Dog. My old friend Graham got me into these guys a few years back and they’re hands down one of the most creative dudes out there right now. Their sound is vintage and familiar but like nothing you’ve heard before. They harmonize like the Beach Boys and jam like My Morning Jacket.

They’ve got a new song out called Shadow People to give you a taste of what the new album is going to sound like. Honestly they just keep getting better as they go. This song sounds like they’re jamming a little more, it’s a little more epic, maybe with a touch of 80’s guitars at the end. It’s wonderful no matter how you want to describe it.

Shame, Shame comes out on April 6, which isn’t nearly soon enough. They’ll also be touring the album, so be sure to catch ’em live if they come near you.
