D is for Dawg Yawp


Cincinnati’s music scene is definitely richer for the talented Dawg Yawp. Their latest single “Lost at Sea” has reportedly gained them wider acclaim. That makes me very happy. “I Wanna Be a Dog” is probably my favorite among their folksy tunes. The group’s use of a sitar really sets their sound apart.  The artists look like they walked off the set of 1974’s science fiction comedy “Dark Star”. Gotta love that…



My fake artist for the letter D is Dimensional Drift. I imagine this foursome performing bluesy acid rock much like The Doors. The name is blatantly stolen from the sci fi comedy cartoon “Futurama”. My partner and I have been watching old episodes obsessively of late.

    1. Neat, Keith. Now you're making me crave Indian food. ~grin~ Dawg Yawp have so far stayed pretty local from what I can tell. They did one show in New York City according to their web page.

  4. These guys are a bit too strange for my tastes. Hopefully tomorrow won't be as bizarre. :)

    1. Interesting, Mary. Amusingly enough, I'm not really a fan of most seventies music. And I was born in 1969. ~grin~ Of course, David Bowie is an exception.

  5. Oh I love that song by the Doors. What movie was it, that it was featured in? It was a vampire movie. The Lost Boys!
