It’s nice to finally have that dog. back in action! Though they reformed a few years ago and recorded their follow-up to their superb third album, 1997’s lost classic Retreat From The Sun, they seemed to have disappeared, leaving fans with dashed hopes and totally crushed-out. Seven years since their reunion, the trio of Anna Waronker, Rachel Haden, and Tony Maxwell never sounded tighter are back with Old LP, set for release in October. Violinist/vocalist Petra Haden declined to participate in the reunion, but while her distinctive sound is lacking in first single “If You Just Didn’t Do It,” the trio make up for it with a hefty guitar sucker-punch that’s harder than you might expect from these scrappers. Most of all, it’s just nice to have them back. Can’t wait to hear the rest of the album!
