  1. I know you…

  2. Agree with a couple on the list, but congrats for putting Dr. Dog. Very underrated album this year in my opinion. Nothing groundbreaking, but a solid release.

  3. I think Dr. Dog are great, and like you said, while it may not have been groundbreaking; it’s more-than-solid, and they’re a hell of a band. They deserve so much more attention than they’re getting that I had to include them.

  4. they played bonnaroo didn’t they? aren’t they hippies? i was expecting them to be a hip-hop group or something.

  5. I believe I saw Dr. Dog on Conan and I did not like. I think it is kinda of jammy stuff. Or maybe I am mistaken.

  6. They did perform at Bonnaroo this year, but I definitely wouldn’t consider them a jamband of any sorts. They’re more 60’s classic pop in the veins of Beach Boys meets a tinge of psychedelia. They always put on a good live show.

  7. jam band!

  8. If anything, I would say that their sound is very steep in Beatles influence. There’s also a little Bowie, and I agree with Sam – a little Beach Boys. There old stuff may be a little jammy, but We All Belong is nothing of the sort.
