With a genuinely interesting twist on lo-fi 60s pop-rock, Dr. Dog was like My Morning Jacket in that, when they appeared on the national radar, it felt like a victory that this sort of oddball psychedelic sugar could get that sort of attention. And, for a band that sonically wanders around a lot, they’ve been able to solidify an identity — one that can be as unapologetic in its catchiness as it is indulgent in its own strangeness. It sounds like music that’s difficult to conceptualize, but easy to listen to, which has always impressed me.
