Published Nov 05, 2009Something special is happening in Lethbridge, AB. The college town has never been known for creative output, but a select group are changing that. From the ashes of the band Endangered Ape comes Myelin Sheaths, a science themed garage quartet, and Moby Dicks, who play minimalist, soulful power-pop.
"Ballad of the Red Dog" is the A-side from their brand new seven-inch, released on their own Mammoth Cave Recordings. The song is an ode to the Red Dog Diner, a Lethbridge eatery that, when open, boasts cheap hot dogs and 14 flavours of poutine.
The song is simple in structure, but endlessly catchy. Get the seven-inch, and put this on a mixtape between King Khan & BBQ Show and Nobunny.
