Military Applications



Dr. Dog co-frontman, dd Toby Leaman bludgeons his way into a musical masterpiece on this solo debut - Military Applications. Speedy pump up jams that pair perfectly with our modern life or past lives. Wildly diverse, vibrant, and dynamic, these songs share the same charm and top notch musicianship that have become a Dr. Dog hallmark.

Dog fans might enjoy the posi-dub vibes of "Don't Worry" or be familiar with the Armageddon love song trope expertly rendered in "7th Seal". But you don't have to be a Dr. Dog fan to dig this record. There is truly something for everyone. If you're into ripping guitar solos and coda rants, "Spooked by the Kooks" should do the trick. If crazed story songs with killer choruses are more your speed, then we suggest "The Runaway". If you want to bop and boogie your way through modern terrors try "Military Applications". If you can't get enough existential synth apathy and optimism, "Rider" will get you through the night.

This product is guaranteed to make you move and is probably pretty close to carbon neutral.
