A hard one to nail down; imagine Bob Mould with what’s-his-name from the Cure on vocals? This is one of those rock’n’roll records that I keep in rotation as an antidote / change of pace to the frenzy that is my collection otherwise. In general, Dot Dash play a more subdued and tuneful form of rock that is potentially radio friendly, but ultimately isn’t because it’s just a wee bit weird in ways that the general public can’t quite figure out. Twenty-five or thirty years ago, this would be thrown into rotation on “college rock” playlists. I like it.
