A Giant Dog
A Giant Dog
Toy, the fourth LP from A Giant Dog and their second for Merge, captures the Austin quintet at the height of their powers. A solid year of road-dogging and woodshedding has made the band tighter than ever, the charging dynamo of Andrew Cashen and Andy Bauer’s guitars in lockstep with the primal chug of the rhythm section, Graham Low on bass and Daniel Blanchard on drums, in the latter’s recorded debut. Singer Sabrina Ellis turns in another masterful performance, in equal parts brash, defiant, vulnerable, and raw.

Lyrically, Sabrina and Andrew have a gift for making their personal frustrations and fuck-ups, fears, lusts, and addictions feel universal. While they have always given voice to the weirdos and creeps, they dig even deeper on Toy. “I feel I’ve revealed more in this album than ever before,” Sabrina confesses.

The band recorded Toy with Grammy-winning engineer Stuart Sikes (Loretta Lynn, Cat Power, The White Stripes, Reigning Sound), with Cashen producing it. “Andrew as producer makes a lot of sense,” Sabrina says. “He composes the songs and knows better than anyone what they should sound like in the end. With him at the helm, we’ve arrived at a raw, truthful, risky, and rangy album.”

...I was trippin'

Bat Fangs are back after their extreme world tour (if your world is NC/DC) to bring you the sounds you will soon know and love. Think Thin Lizzy meets Pat Benetar meets Black Sabbath, and the GoGo's. Throw in a little Roky Erickson to the mix to make it all weirdo. Betsy Wright (Ex-Hex) shreds and wails on the SG, and Laura King (Flesh Wounds/Cold Cream) slugs the drums. Killer vocal harmonies included. Featuring Billy Buckley on the bass.
