7/10 Mike Staff review, 16 January 2014

I'm finally nearing the end of today's review pile, but before I finish here's the second LP by Atlanta's Dog Bite, who play a kind of Wild Nothing-esque ketamine shoegoth which is alternately dreamy and dreary. It's like a foggy dream about Echo & the Bunnymen. There's lots of reverb and echo and soft synths and bare-bones programmed drums, and the band seem at their most effective when they're incorporating a bit of shoegazey fuzz into proceedings. They have a nice line in chiming little guitar lines with just the right amount of faltering distortion. However when they tone the guitar down, like on 'Clarinets' it comes across rather like a more hesitant Washed Out drastically overhauling East 17's Christmas hit.

Aside from the occasional "skipper" this is a pretty solid offering, though. 'Lady Queen' is moody, pulsating and understated in much sexier ways than The National have come up with, more like J&MC spiked with viagra; 'Tuesdays' is like the intro to the big finale of 'Gitaroo Man' reinvented as a mogadon hallucination, 'Wonder Dark' sounds like Ian Brown singing in Deerhunter. Sure, there's the odd song that drags a bit, but at least half these tracks are on the money.
