More Dogs: Never Let Them Catch You Crying
" Swear it's Charlie Chaplin covering This Heat or Brise-Glace!....a grand mix of playful and artistry." - Pataphysics Res. Journal
More Dogs are an enigmatic trio from Monitor's hard working hometown ofBaltimore, USA. After experimenting for several years in their loft/studioin Little Italy, More Dogs finally emerged with a refreshing sound basedaround a varied collection of instruments; the standards: guitar, bass,drums, organ, and the non-standards: whistles, triangles, vibraphones,slapsticks, blocks, and cowbells.
Their sound, always difficult to interpret into words is somewhere betweensoundtrack-circus-instrumental-rock. Or as a reviewer put it "like beingstoned listening to Van Dyke Parks' Song Cycle while your little brother iswatching cartoons in the other room."
The album was recorded almost entirely live in the studio, during which themembers had to tip toe around the studio and interchange instruments. Onstage More Dog perform the same way. Swapping instruments while playing,sometimes holding the keys down on the organ until someone replaces them, orholding notes on a guitar to make a switch, all working in some sort ofchoreography that matches the whimsical charm of More Dogs' music.
Recorded and live, More Dogs are producing diversely beautiful music thatgets more rewarding after each listening session.
