Dr. Dog - What's In My Bag? - Amoeba Music

Scott McMicken of Dr. Dog did some shopping at Amoeba Hollywood for our latest What's In My Bag? episode. "I done good," he told us, having dug for some records by his recent musical interests, including the odd-ball, experimental rockers Quintron and Miss Pussycat. Their album Swamp Tech/Electric Swamp was "something that was on the top of my list to suss out when I got here." He continued, "I've gotten really into the whole world of Quintron and Miss Pussycatm, which goes so far, even beyond music."

American rock band Dr. Dog fuses elements of iconic '60s pop acts like The Beatles and The Beach Boys with contemporary indie rock. Founded in Philadelphia in 1999, the band consists of childhood Dr. Dog - Critical Equationfriends Toby Leaman (bass guitar/vocals) and Scott McMicken (lead guitar/vocal), plus Frank McElroy (rhythm guitar), Zach Miller (keyboard), and Eric Slick (drums). The band coalesced while several of the members were attending West Chester University in Pennsylvania. Their first album, 2001's The Psychedelic Swamp, was self-recorded and self-released.

Massive Attack Vinyl Reissues Coming Soon

Massive Attack vinyl reissues

On December 23rd, pioneering English electronica duo Massive Attack are reissuing three essential albums on 180-gram vinyl. Formerly a trio, original members Robert "3D" Del Naja and Grant "Daddy G" Marshall changed the course of dance music, slowing it down and infusing it with hip-hop rhythms to create a musical hybrid that would establish Massive Attack as a major presence in the music world and help open the doors for collaborators/fellow travelers Tricky and Portishead. Unfortunately, the group's early albums have been hard to find on vinyl for several years, unless you were lucky enough to score a used copy or a pricey import. But that's about to change soon, and here's why we're delighted to bring each LP home and put the needle on the record.

Blue Lines

Blue Lines

With the release of their debut LP Blue Lines in 1991, Massive Attack put themselves and the whole Bristol scene on the map. Fusing elements of hip-hop, reggae, soul, and electronica, the album features classic tracks "Lately," "Daydreaming," and "Unfinished Sympathy," with contributions from Shara Nelson and Horace Andy.

New Dubstep/Jungle 12"s coming This Weekend:

Jakes
JUSTICE 12"
SINS002

Disgusting bass, sinister vibes as cold as ice, and pounding beats combine for a monster of a track. On the flip is "PUMP ACTION" by CHIMPO, with a menacing dancefloor slayer with its instantly recognizable sample of "pump, pump, pump"!

Example
WATCH THE SUN...(JOKER RMX) 12"
DATA221P3 

One-sided limited deal with the synthed-out dubstep wonderkid, JOKER. This is slinky as hell, with fuzzy synths, crisp percussion, and the vocal gets cleverly chopped.
