I’m sick and stuck inside, so I decided to finally turn this place into a music blog.
Say hello to my very first post. Anyway, here we go.
This is a preview of Dog and Panther’s upcoming album “White is a Color.” The only information given about its release is the number 2012, so sometime this year. But no one knows when!
Of course, this might be a good thing, seeing as Azaelia Banks has delayed the release of her EP, yet again. At least they don’t run the risk of disappointing their fans.
Anyway, I’m super stoked for this upcoming album, and while previews can chafe, I’ve always been a fan of Dog and Panther’s unorthodox “instruments” and mixing style.
Here’s another great video from their first album “What Happened,” released in 2010, that really gets at what they’re about.
I just hope they don’t get known for such gimmicks, as they really do make excellent music.
There are bands that get away with excellent musicality and mediocre song-writing, but Dog and Panther makes sure everything is cohesively crisp, quirky and meaningful. Their lyrics do not escape intense scrutiny, and it really shows. This band really cares, but does it in a way that doesn’t make them seem overly serious. They’re trying, but not too hard. It’s quirky and fun! But don’t be surprised when you’re struck by an unsuspected lyrical punch to your more somber of emotions.
Funnily enough, I discovered Dog and Panther during a lonely winter and a bout with the flu, much as I’m doing now. I’m pretty sure they’re not related, so don’t let my frailty scare you away.
