Dott's 2013 full length, Swoon, was one of my favorite albums of 2013. The Galway, Ireland based band captivated me with their garage pop melodies and spot on vocal harmonies. If I were hard pressed to say, 'Small Pony', 'Rain Day', and 'Talk to You' would be my favorites from the album, but there's not a single bit of filler on the album. Spectacular from beginning to end. Now, they're back with a Record Store Day 2015 split release with the Northern California band Night School titled Carousel. Each band contributed two tracks to the Graveface Records exclusive release which will be limited to 1000 copies.
The first track from the release is Dott's effervescent 'Car Song', it just may be the best thing they've done so far. I've been obsessing over it for a few weeks now, join me in streaming it below, it's my Song of the Day!
Carousel is out on Graveface Records on Record Store Day, April 18th 2015. Graveface Records is out of Savannah, Georgia, and home to one of Aimless Skylarking's favorite bands, The Casket Girls.
Dott are Anna (Guitar/Vocals), Laura (Bass/Vocals), Miriam (Guitar/Vocals), and Tony (Drums).
