With more harmonies than you can handle, groovy beats and poetic lyrics about love, loss and temporality, Dr. Dog’s psychedelic sound is unlike anything heard this side of the 1960s. Straight out of Philadelphia, this five-piece created its unique old-school sound in home studios on classic 8-track recording equipment. Behind the distinctive lead vocals of Toby Leaman and Scott McMicken, the rest of the band rounds out Dr. Dog’s music with plenty of guitar fuzz, poppy keyboard riffs and a chorus of backing vocals.

Based in Ontario, Canada The Tragically Hip is an alternative rock band that has been active since 1983.

With catchy melodies and solid instrumentation, The Tragically Hip saw early critical and commercial acclaim, snagging multiple Juno Awards along the way. After four more studio albums, the band made the switch over to Universal Records and released its sixth studio albumPhantom Power, in 1998.
