I initially heard Dot Dash! a few years ago when they were on a nifty split 10” with Ultraman. Now their first two albums are compiled on one handy CD, for those not in a hunting mood. Dot Dash! sing in English, but hail from France. They sound like a happier, more accessible version of Samiam. This is a real treat for fans of earnest, emo-ish pop, which— judging by my nonstop swaying—, includes me. Dash to your local record store and look for Dot Dash!
