Click this link to read the full article.
“Classic American rock, an homage to the great bands of the 70s and 80s, musical masters like Steely Dan, Leonard Cohen and Led Zeppelin. The Seattle-based Sundogs are making the music that they love. It’s wonderful to hear music played by career musicians with a passion for their art. These songs are crafted and thoughtful, catchy and complex. The simplicity of the melodies belays the depth of the lyrics.
They have the irony of a Leonard Cohen record and the sarcasm of Tom Petty with a little jazz mixed in, compliments of Steely Dan. Each song takes us in a different direction, and there are a lot of songs -12! Which takes me back to when proper albums really existed and liner notes where biblical in length.
This a great album, whimsical and warmly retrospective. It’s also a video album, with a lot of humor and creativity. These guys work hard that’s for sure!!”
