Dove – S/T

leave a comment »

Dove is a band that you only hear whispers of and really only in certain circles.  I had the privilege of seeing them at a club I worked for around 2005.  Sadly there were only about 20 people there.  No matter, Dove was great.  The lineage of this band is pretty heavy and goes something like this:


Ah, you know Floor and Torche?  Yes, same ones.  I saw Floor a few months ago during FunFunFunFest in Austin and they are playing here again Saturday…of course I am seeing them again.  Mammoth Grinder is opening and they are quality as well.

But back to Dove.  This album crushes.  It’s near the best 30 or so minutes you can spend listening to music.  Heavy, down-tuned, melodic, no song clocks in over 3:55.  The CD has long been out of print and apparently a vinyl reissue came out a year or so ago.
