Every dog has its day...

Dog Day
Fun Dog Records

Talented husband and wife duo Seth Smith and Nancy Ulrich of Dog Day are set to re-arrange your world on August 2nd with the release of Deformer. The first record on their new, home-based record label, Fun Dog, Smith also produced and mixed the album and, along with partner Paul Hammond—the other half of screen-printing art team, Yo Rodeo (www.yorodeo.ca) also created the original album artwork. A true labour of love, the follow up to 2009’s indie success “Concentration” brings the band “back to basics”. Despite a Pigeon Row Records press release describing the band’s recent reformation from a foursome to a twosome as “a series of disfiguring rearrangements and amputations”, Dog Day fans will find the same catchy, fuzzy romance, haunting, garage-esque vocals, and youthful musical simplicity combined with a heartbreakingly adult lyrical perspective. Bookended by the sounds of a dog dreaming, Destroyer is a well-rounded album that provides the lullaby tone and cozy familiarity that similarly keep fans in a perpetual lucid, musical daydream. Peppered with songs reminiscent of past albums (“Daydream”; “Eurozone”) danceable summer jams (“I Wanna Mix” ; “Part Girl”) as well as stripped-down indie rock tunes (“Bluish Grey” ;“Mr. Freeze”) Destroyer is versatile and eclectic, an ideal companion for any activity from deep contemplation to an impromptu dance party. ~ Whitney Moran
