Dr. Dog We All Belong on LP

While Philly's impeccable traditionalists, Dr. Dog embraced a 24-track reel-to-reel for 2007's We All Belong, eschewing the 8-track on which they recorded their previous records, the gear upgrade does not change the band's warm analog sound in the slightest. However, the songs on We All Belong do feel more fleshed out than on the lo-fi classic Easy Beat, with more established Zombies-esque harmonies, more piano turnarounds reminiscent of the Beatles and more hooks a la Badfinger and Todd Rundgren. 

While traditional revisionism is nothing new in indie rock, Dr. Dog's so-real-it-could-be-a-reissue approach very much is. The quintet's effortless talent, melodic chops, ego-free creative chemistry and obvious passion for the rock canon make songs like "The Girl," "My Old Ways," and "Alaska" sound like a revival, not a reference. This masterpiece is crafted from that same heart that folks like Brian Wilson, Neil Young, Robbie Robertson, John Lennon and Paul McCartney were masterfully culling from.

Dr. Dog have written a classic that is not only timeless, but rich in soul, alive via rock and roll, at some times eerie with its familiarity, and wholly unique in sonic experimentation. The production on We All Belong lends as much to George Martin as it does to Jeff Mangum. The songs written by the young gentlemen in Dr. Dog could be considered a grand homage to the brilliance of an era long gone, or even a wake up call to a generation of equally uninspired and tiresome indie rock.
