Glasgow’s El Dog on On-Stage Nudity, Flute-Playing Sound Guys, Hostels and More

El Dog 2El Dog is an excellent four-piece band from Glasgow, Scotland, UK whose style is Alternative, Ambient Rock. They are gently arousing, yet soothing to the ears, and all while having the drive and power to exhilarate and entice.

Their new album, The Lamps of Terrahead, is justly getting great reviews from all over the UK, ranging from BBC Radio 1 to the national news press.

If your tastes include bands such as Muse, Led Zeppelin, Idlewild, Radiohead, Mogwai and Biffy Clyro, then El Dog should be in your collection. The Lamps of Terrahead is the band’s stunning debut and is sure to get them noticed and loved by all. It is out on October 19th, 2009 on Lo – Five Records and will be available through Itunes and all major download sites. I would recommend pre-ordering a copy to avoid disappointment.

RockAngel’s Weekly Radar – The Working Title

bone-islandThe Weekly Radar is here to bring you the artists, albums and songs that might not be on your musical radar, but should be.  This week, I’d like to introduce you to Joel Hamilton—the mastermind behind The Working Title.

The new album Bone Island just came out on the 12th and is nothing short of a musical masterpiece.  However, The Working Title has been releasing consistently well-crafted albums since 2003 and has since matured like a fine wine.  Since their initial EP in 2003, the band has dwindled down to the bare bones of only Joel Hamilton and the producing genius known as Jake Sinclair with mixing done by Claudius Mittendorfer (Mars Volta, Muse, Maroon 5, Brand New).  As the layers of the band peeled away, Joel really found his voice and the new album finds its way into contention for my vote of one of the best albums of the year so far.
