Dr. Dog            

Despite their loyal hometown following, Dr. Dog could have very well remained a Philadelphia phenomenon had guitarist/vocalist Scott McMicken’s then-girlfriend not slipped a copy of Toothbrush, a collection of home recordings, to Jim James of My Morning Jacket, who would take them on their first tour and prepare the way for the waves of positive press that would greet 2005’s Easy Beat. By 2007, their next album, We All Belong, was earning the band opening slots for Wilco and the Raconteurs and they were turning up all over late-night television. They upped the ante with their sonically ambitious Fate and started headlining their own tours. The band's version of pop-rock is strongly influenced by bands of the 1960s. Their earlier recordings show influence of the lo-fi sound and pop sensibilities of indie rock bands of the 1990s, with recent albums boasting a more polished finish.
