Under The Radar

Listening to The Sun Dogs, it seems almost impossible that the album came out in 2013 and not 40 years ago. And this is a very good thing. 


Though the album's openness does require some amount of patience on the listener's part, it's a beautifully crafted album that expands upon the ground laid by the recent experiments of Earth

Consequence of Sound

It borrows from its forebearers with echoes of late ’60s/early ’70s psychedelia, pastoral folk, and heavy rock. Yet the album is equally rooted in the present in its (albeit high-flown) lyrical rejection of the evils and excesses of modern life, the snake being a motif that glides in and out of the songs.


For all the skill on display here, the album as a whole feels ponderous, weighted down by the more self-important tendencies of classic stoner rock.
