Plain Dog

Plain Dog brings ambient indie to Elsewhere 04.09

On their new album, All My Friends, released this past February, New York's Plain Dog carries the DIY/indie torch while also managing to inject something fresh into their material. The seven-track album is at once buoyant and crackling with angst, with driving percussion and fuzzed-out guitars reminiscent of Modest Mouse and hints of Nirvana. With this release, Plain Dog delivers in droves and promises great things to come. You can catch them at Elsewhere on April 9th. Listen to "Cherry Cola" below! - Ethan Ames


Plain Dog Brings Renewed Simplicity to Slacker Rock

While NYC may be abuzz with shoegaze, slacker rock, and grunge revival bands, there's something unmistakably unique about Brooklyn-based Plain Dog. Their latest song, "Cherry Cola," features all the hallmarks of nu-grunge --- fuzz-drenched guitars, driving rhythms and lo-fi production --- however there's something delightfully earnest in the song's celebration of something so simple. Plain Dog effortlessly attaches longing and nostalgia to something as ordinary as a cherry-flavored soda and in turn provides listeners with a tangible means of connection that works in ways where loftier lyrics of abstractions fail. You can catch Plain Dog's next show at Elsewhere on Monday November, 6th. -Andrew Strader 

Garage rock act Plain Dog releases debut EP

The newly formed Brooklyn band, Plain Dog, is getting in touch with garage rock's surf-pop side. They just released their first EP at the beginning of August and opened for the LA garage punk band No Parents this past Friday night at Elvis Guesthouse. The EP (available online and on cassette) opens with the track "Really Wanna Dance" (streaming below),and that seems to be the attitude of the whole album. All five songs are so catchy and upbeat that you'll really wanna dance to Plain Dog, too. - Sam O'Hara
