With Dr. Dog’s latest collection of songs, Be the Void (out now on Anti-), there’s a renewed commitment to the party-jam sound that fans of this Philly-area band have loved for over a decade. According to guitarist/vocalist Scott McMicken, the group looked for inspiration in “music that got its roots in live expression rather than that studio-perfected sort of vibe.” A refreshing thought indeed.

MNDR hasn't been in the spotlight much since the release of their E.P.E. EP in 2010, but that's all about to change.

The single “I Fink U Freeky” is straight-up rap and rave music, perfect for glow sticks. I ... Read More

Based on Monday night’s premiere, it looks like season four is gonna be good, with synthetic hair, catfights, and gloriously bitchy insults galore.
