The band’s all here: Dr. Dog photographed in Philadelphia by Chris Crisman.
The phenomenally popular rock band Dr. Dog, one of the area’s most successful musical exports, has a new album out — and, so we can’t be accused of burying the lead — it’s streaming right now at RollingStone.com.
The new record, B-Room, was recorded in the band’s Clifton Heights recording studio, also named B-Room. Its construction was, if not a labor of love, certainly laborious.
