about

Dog Day linked up with its spiritual forebear, Rick White – whose work with Eric's Trip and Elevator has obviously had a profound influence on the young Halifax quartet – for a few wild days of recording in the country last March, yielding a creepy, slightly tripped-out five-song companion to this year's wicked Concentration album. White has drawn out the more unsettling elements of the band's grimly propulsive post-punk sound, but the melodies are as strong and as memorable as ever. Until you get to the second side, which is a 10-minute experimental noise freakout unlike anything Dog Day has tried before and, perhaps, an intriguing portent of things to come from what is, for my money, the most exciting Canadian act of the moment. Just 400 copies out there on vinyl only. Get your ass to Rotate This before they're gone.

-Ben Rayner (Toronto Star)
