Special Winery Dogs Edition!!!
I fell head over heels in love with The Winery Dogs’ self-titled debut album, and the band’s second release Hot Streak proves that they still have that special something that pushes every single one of my listening-pleasure buttons. Hot Streak is a more eclectic and musically varied outing than the band’s debut, with the trio going all out rock, dipping into r&b and soul, and slipping into some ballads, but that special Winery Dogs’ sound is still unmistakable.
We do the digging so you can just Dig It!
I am totally in love with this track from The Winery Dogs, taken from their latest album ‘Hot Streak’ (read my review). Love the groove, the riffs, THAT bass!, the drums, and Kotzen’s stellar vocals. Red-hot stuff!
The band has just announced a string of US tour-dates: check them out here.
So. damn. good: the title track off The Winder Dog’s latest album. Check it out:
The Winery Dogs recorded this cover of David Bowie’s ‘Moonage Daydream’ before Bowie passed away, but decided to release earlier than planned in the wake of his death. It is a beautiful tribute to the man and his music.
The Winery Dogs’ new album ‘Hot Streak’ is one of my favourite releases this year, and ‘Fire’ is one of my favourite tracks off this fantastic album.
To quote my own review of ‘Hot Streak’, “Every track on Hot Streak brings out something different from the band, and while the music showcases the band’s superior level of craftsmanship and skill, it’s Kotzen’s vocals that really stand out for me on this record. He packs so much emotion into every phrase and word and melody, and sings with a kind of effortless power that makes the hair on the back of my neck stand on end. For an example of just how good he is, listen to the ballad ‘Fire’, featuring some gorgeous acoustic guitar as well.”
The official video for The Winery Dogs’ track ‘Oblivion’ from the band’s new album Hot Streak is hot off the press – and I just frigging love the tune. Here’s the official video, as well as a drum-cam video of Mike Portnoy doing his magic thing.
And the new album? Yeah, review is coming. Spoiler: it’s really, really good.
