DOGJAW: Slow to Build: LP

Three-piece from Olympia with two women up front, layering on perfect punk wails. Just the right fuzzy bass tone and dingy guitar, like wet leaves on the ground in the woods. And when it gears up, goddamn, it’s like taking off running, or feeling your hair blow backwards. To call this wild would make it sound feral and sloppy; to call it free would make it sound too airy. All I can say is that it has a certain intangible something that makes mixing late ‘80s Northwestern punk with early 2000s hippie crust sound new, exciting, and real
