What happens when a psychedelic rock band makes a soul album? You get "B-Room," from Philadelphia-based Dr. Dog. It's their eighth album, and it's the product of a new studio, a new recording approach and a new identity as a band, which has been compared to Tom Waits, Nirvana and The Beach Boys.

Dr. Dog is performing Saturday night at the Levitate Music and Arts Festival in Marshfield.

Rolling Stone: Dr. Dog Builds 'B-Room' From The Ground Up

  • "This literal hands-on approach kick-started a much-needed creative re-boot. Dr. Dog have always been revered for the deft, fluid interplay of their live shows, blending funk with roots-rock and psychedelia – but their previous albums are mostly sonic patchworks, pieced together through extensive overdubbing and demoing. B-Room offers a simpler, more organic approach to songcraft, a truer reflection of Dr. Dog's strengths as a band playing together in a room."
