Listen to A Giant Dog’s lustful new track “Jizzney”
New album Pile out 6th May on Merge Records
The band describes their forthcoming album Pile as “if Marty McFly time-hopped from a Gershwin score to an acid party with Bowie and Bolan then woke up clutching his skateboard, throbbing hangover, on the edge of a half-pipe in a park in ’90s suburbia.”
Prior to “Jizzney,” A Giant Dog shared the album’s second single “Get With You and Get High” which features guest vocals from Spoon’s Britt Daniel. The band debuted material from the album with the frenetic, glitter-filled video for “Sex & Drugs,” a song thatPopMatters described as “one delicious little masterpiece, from the overdrive-drenched bass that kicks things off to the giddy two-pronged vocal belting.”
Pile shows a band whose years of road-dogging have honed them into unstoppable rock machines. Their second time working with producer Mike McCarthy (Spoon, White Denim, Trail of Dead) reveals Sabrina Ellis’ impressive pipes, Andrew Cashen’s sweet licks, and a pummeling rhythm section – everything is tighter, more focused, crisper. The album deals with divorce, getting older, dying, frustration, and futility, ultimately transcending those earthly headaches through the power of rock ’n’ roll.
