In 2009 we released a cassette by LA’s Puppy Dog that would end up being their only release. Despite the short lifespan, the band was so distinct and powerful in their subdued sort of way, this release has remained one of my favorite hidden gems in the Deathbomb catalog. A no-electricity pop band, using just a couple drums, xylophone, and voice, the trio of ladies known as Puppy Dog had both the comfortable bedroom quality of 90s K records bands, but could project themselves as a huge force thanks to passionate performances and singer, Dana’s, soulful voice. A voice that has always struck me as in the same spirit of one of my favorite acts of all time, The Exciters.
Today I am very excited to announce that this wonderful cassette is available as a free download via our bandcamp page. This version includes a bonus track never before released! So, please, discover the fun that was Puppy Dog! And also be sure to check out Dana’s current band, Batwings Catwings!
