Bark Your Head Off, Dog (2018)

BARK YOUR HEAD OFF, DOG IS HOP ALONG’S THIRD FULL- LENGTH ALBUM, AND IS WITHOUT QUESTION, THEIR MOST DYNAMIC AND TEXTURED RECORD YET. SELF-PRODUCED AND RECORDED AT THE HEADROOM IN PHILADELPHIA BY REINHART AND KYLE PULLEY, BARK YOUR HEAD OFF, DOG FEATURES THE FAMILIAR SOUNDS THAT HAVE ALWAYS MADE THE BAND ALLERGIC TO GENRE: GRUNGE, FOLK, PUNK, AND POWER POP ALL APPEAR, WITH INSPIRATION FROM ELO TO ELVIS COSTELLO TO ‘70S GIRL GROUP VOCAL ARRANGEMENTS. THIS TIME AROUND, THEY’VE ADDEDSTRINGS, MORE INTRICATE RHYTHMS, LUSH HARMONIES (FEATURING THIN LIPS’ CHRISSY TASHJIAN), ALONG WITH A MOMENTARY VISIT WITH A VOCODER.
