Dr. Dog’s seventh full-length, Be The Void, was released on February 7, but we still can’t keep “Lonesome” out of our heads here at KRUI. The song’s sunny, classic rock feel is nothing new for the group, but rather a continuation of what was already great. Sloppily perfect vocals, big loopy melodies, and a jam session feel are what give “Lonesome” its easy-going charm.
