Some bands just sound better live than they do in the studio no matter what studio trickery you pull out of the hat. Dr. Dog have a very solid fan-base which has really been built around their live performances, one that has spread word-of-mouth like wildfire. They are one of those must see bands where the dynamics between the audience and the band are second to none. On 13th January they release Live at a Flamingo Hotel via Anti- Records, their first live release. This video clip of them performing Shadow People (our Song of the Day) just shows how great they really are in what is clearly their ultimate comfort zone.
Talking about the release bassist/vocalist Toby Leaman (who pulls some fine footwork on stage) said “That’s always what we’ve wanted to do. We’re one thing on a record and a different thing live. Somebody goes to a DR. DOG show and they come back again and they bring more people with them. Our live show is vital to how we view ourselves as a band.”
