The Dogs: The Dogs

The core of Chicago band The Dogs is a trio, but it might get crowded on stage sometimes, when they add extra guitar players, a drummer and a backup singer. They write intimate songs that lean heavily on percussion, sometimes implementing weird endings like the coda of Useless Me that hints at the synth used for The Who's Won't Get Fooled Again.

After releasing a slew of EPs they put together a self-titled mini album that deserves a spin on a sunny Spring afternoon. It's lo-fi, mostly acoustic, and charming.

The Dogs:
Peter Walters: guitar, vocals
James Krivchenia: guitar, percussion
Matt Bachmann: bass
