Golden Dogs - "Long As You Like" Video (PopMatters Premiere)

Toronto popsters Golden Dogs recharge their creative juices on their infectious new album, Coat of Arms, releasing 26 April.

After a long cycle of touring their last album, Big Eye Little Eye, with the likes of Sloan and Feist, Toronto's Golden Dogs seemed to be at the end of the line. The band was exhausted and their bass player, Stew Heyduk, left the group. Main man Dave Azzolini and Jessica Grassia headed back to Canada to recharge their creative juices and began crafting new material in a small garage studio in Toronto owned by their pals, Carlin Nicholson and Mike O’Brien, otherwise known as Zeus. Soon other musician friends began to join in and the band was on a roll. As Azzolini descibes, "It was very much a ‘best idea wins’ situation and the songwriter always had final veto power. It made for a very comfortable environment to make music. It was just musicians getting together to bounce ideas off each other." The result of the creative ferment is the new album, Coat of Arms, releasing 26 April. First up is the latest single, the uber catchy "Long As You Like", which has a brand new video that we are premiering today.
