Why, to ignore these harmonies would be un-American; as Byrds– and Beach Boys–loving patriots Dr. Dog know, no sweet, psychedelic croon is as exciting alone as with three more piled upon it. The Philadelphia five, perhaps known as the rare bearded pacifists of virulent label ANTI-, are reportedly upping their production for next spring’s Shame, Shame, their sixth record, but still retail the unassuming, lo-fi disjointment-pop that made them the spacey festival faves at recent Treasure Island and Coachella outings. Brooklyn Bowl will counter with irony, but these guys mean every cry.
