DOGS OF WINTER
CUT DOWN TO THE QUICK
Embodying what a rock ‘n roll band should be about, NYC’s Dogs of Winter play a kind of sultry, sinewy hard rock devoid of pandering or excess. Instead, this trio opts to get down and dirty like Motorhead meeting the Foo Fighters on the bong-induced groove of “Natasha” and the All versus Nirvana crunch of “Thumbscrews”. Armed with sweeping choruses, guitar fuzz galore, and an airtight rhythm section that solidifies the foundation, CUT DOWN TO THE QUICK is an album whose hypnotically hazy riffs and thick delivery transcend metal, punk, and stoner rock, drawing up something substantial for the kids to load the bong to.
