Ruby’s Prime Slices of the Week (4/16-4/22)

Dr. Dog – Critical Equation (Rock n’ Roll)

If you like Dr. Dog, there is an almost certain chance you will like anything they put out. They are an incredibly consistent band. Critical Equation is their 10th full length record, as they approach their 20th year as a band, and it continues the pattern. The album gives listeners the Beatles-esque catchy pop songwriting that made Dr. Dog, but sees the band experimenting with structure and sound in a way that blends perfectly. They are unafraid to wear their influences on their sleeve, but they add so much original style that their music is its own wonderful entity.

Favorite Tracks: Listening In, Go Out Fighting, Virginia Please

KNASH  – Lame – single (Silly Garage Rock)

Everyone likes to have a good time right? Swedish 6 piece garage-rock-trash-pop-punk writes this song as a “poke to lame people who ruin one’s life”. Though this genre is a bit played out in the states, these Swedes are doing it with such fervor and joy that it recalls what FIDLAR made us feel like our junior year high school.
