Long known for their must-see live shows, Dr. Dog have lately been rather quiet on the touring side of things. Asked if they were getting a little weary of being on the road, front man Toby Leaman laughs, “I’ve never been busier in my life; I can’t wait till we’re out on tour and just playing shows”. After releasing a live album at the top of 2015, Dr. Dog immediately began an intense collaboration with The Pig Iron Theatre Company, setting out to present their legendary (though still unreleased) 1999 album, The Psychedelic Swamp, in theatrical form. With a cast of 30 and an oversized production budget, the performances amazed both rock fans and theater-goers alike, the Philadelphia
Inquirer’s pop critic called it “Ingenious” and “Full of heart and soul" The band is currently in the process of recording two new albums, which they’ll continue working on the remainder of the year until they take a “break” and spend the first half of 2016 on the road.
Fly Golden Eagle
In their current state, Fly Golden Eagle has been going strong for over 3 years. Ben Trimble has spearheaded the band for over 5, first playing shows with a boombox and a tape behind him, and since evolving into a full-fledged band that has released 3 albums and an EP. Richard, Jitch Moans and Odin Comin flesh out the mostly foursome, but sometimes they grow other limbs.
They've traveled the Silk Highway to help in The Resistance of the Propagators of the Pinkest Floss, as well as the nation of Canada, where the people love their music, but the Government does not. Their songs are meant to be titillating, multilateral, and other fun, vintage buzz words. Fly Golden Eagle sincerely tries to find it's place in the cosmos and the sentient beings on earth, but sometimes have a hard time figuring out what that means.
Everyone in Fly Golden Eagle are a part of many other projects, most of which fall under the umbrella of the label they run and self-release everything on: Blacktooth Records, which has 9 releases to date, including records, a book of poetry and a cologne. Fly Golden Eagle is currently touting their latest, psych-funk release, "Swagger", wherever they go and are working on a follow-up record to be released soon. See them in the sun.
