As you probably know, I'm not a band promoter here, nor am I adept at writing about bands. I normally don't do this and I wouldn't if it weren't for the fact I really like these guys known as Dot Dash. They are a current pop indie band, not a band from the 90's. However, they were in such bands as Tree Fort Angst and Glo-worm on K Records as well as Youth Brigade. Also the drummer, Danny, played in Swervedriver for awhile.
Here's what The Owl Mag had to say about Dot Dash:
Dot Dash is a post-punk band with the admirable
quality of taking influence from indie music of all eras and bringing in
into their own modern sound. The DC based artists’ mass of collective
experience (Dot Dash members have previously hailed from Julie Ocean, Youth Brigade, The Saturday People, the list goes on…) sees them putting out slick, polished, and fast songs with guitar riffs to rave about.
The group’s mixed bag of musical influences has led them from the
garage-punk sound of debut spark>flame>ember>ash onto that much
smoother sound of sophomore Winter Garden Light, a rich
lyrical album that plays like a timeline of indie guitar-rock with a
shoegaze finish. On top of that, the band’s recent third album release –
Half-Remembered Dream – takes on a jangly, mid-tempo, Britpop vibe. Think the new-wave influence of The Jam with the snappy melodies of The Strokes and Teenage Fanclub.
