New Jam from Dot Dash
Over the summer I stumbled upon DC outfit Dot Dash, falling in love with their post-punk stylings. They had everything I loved about the genre, but that all stemmed from their old record. Luckily, the band is back with a new album, Winter Garden Light, which has the group forging into new territory. While they still hold onto some semblance of post-punk, there seems to be a bit of Flying Nun nostalgia in the guitars, giving the group a sunnier sound fueled by sincere melodies and hooks. I just got a hold of the record, and I’ll have a full review up next week; for now, you need to hear the opening track just to get a taste.
