Dot Dash - Searchlights
Dot Dash hasn't put out a mediocre album yet, but Searchlights is their most complete, consistent and, to my ears, most satisfying. It appears that a conscious decision was made to increase the rock muscle and leave a few ragged edges. The result is brilliant, as the approach adds immediacy and punch to the perfectly crafted power pop nuggets. You can listen to a few examples below, but I strongly suggest putting on your earphones and listening to the entire album at the Bandcamp link.
Dot Dash are Terry Banks, Steve Hansgen, Hunter Bennett, and Danny Ingram. Searchlights is out now via This Is Beautiful Music. See the links below, and don't miss the special label offer linked at the bottom of the post.
