A new band featuring members of local rock bands Room 149 and Eclectic Mayhem, Window Dogs
play everything from acoustic pop to hard rock. They aim to be both “accessible” and “innovative,” as they put it. They recorded their debut EP, Afterlife
, at Defunk Studios in Brook Park; Blake LaGrange handled the mastering at Mercury Mastering in Oceanside, Calif.
“The EP is a unique collection of indie rock songs — with folk/pop tracks (including some banjo) as well as, some heavier alt-rock songs,” says singer-keyboardist Jonathan Khouri. With its heavy guitar riffs and parched vocals, the single, “Time Machine,” has a distinctive garage rock swagger to it. The band performs with Smiley Baldazar and Lowly, the Tree Ghost at 7 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 1, at the Bevy in Birdtown
. Tickets are $10.
