The difference between The Bash Dogs and their rock 'n' roll counterparts? Those bands rock, The Bash Dogs bash! That theory holds true on their latest single, "Let's All Sing Along."
Born in raised in sunny Southern California, the Dogs take up the torch of their forefathers The Doors, Jefferson Airplane, Jimi Hendrix and other acid-soaked psychedelic staples. Their main goal? To make every song and jam feel like a party on the beach. These guys know how to craft mind-bending grooves that get you peaking upon impact.
On "Let's All Sing Along," the band takes us on a roller coaster ride that rivals that of the Beatles "Magical Mystery Tour," with each verse increasing in intensity and pure raucousness. Their energy and excitement shine through and the listener has no choice but to drink the kool-aid. The highlights for me include Ray Manzarek-style fuzzy organ riffs, melting mellotron lines, and a twinge of xylophone in the final verse.
When you inspect the lyrics you'll find the Dogs really do promote inclusion and love.
Sing every language is a secret song
Let's all sing along
Sing neither one of us is right or wrong
This release marks The Bash Dogs' fifth single release in 2018! We can only hope that more is on the way!
