Slaughter Beach, Dog’s Gold And Green is very divisive. Why? It’s a ‘take all or leave it’ kind of a song. And when you listen to SBD, it is certainly consistent. But why is it so good?
First of all, there’s a steel guitar. Second of all, think of waking up in the chilly air of the wooded west of the U.S. Quiet, some bird squawks.
Experiential tact; touch that thing, one by one – can you tell what it is?
It’s your ‘intentions’ that grew to be half of what it should. Not enough sunlight, not enough love.
Thoughts become ‘could have’. ‘Would have been’ becomes regret. Regrets are turned off, for there’s not enough attention.
Caress it, like you care. It’s ok.
It’s ok to be caring.
It will bite back. But it’s part of the cycle.
You should bite in return. See how it goes.
Turn on that love’s headlight, then seek to help where the shadows fall.
He or she needs you most there.
Ramparts are opened with songs like this- conversations are harnessed better.
Slaughter Beach, Dog’s intrepid ‘mild-ness’ and musical integrity takes us somewhere else. It’s a great start.
Their new album officially drops October 27th.
They’re rep’ed by Lame-O Records, out of Philadelphia.
Check ’em all out.
We dig SBD, and so should you.
