Cincinnati’s Dawg Yawp weave together psychedelic rock, folk, electronica and American roots music in a wholly unique sound that’s all tied together by the sitar. Yes, I said sitar. If you never got enough of George Harrison’s sitar playing on Sgt. Pepper’s, then start here and you’ll think you’ve gone to heaven. Dawg Yawp is comprised of two best friends — Tyler Randall and Rob Keenan — who moved back to their Ohio hometown to work on the Dawg Yawp project and their debut self-titled album releasing October 14th via Old Flame Records.
“I’ve been experimenting for years to find the best place for the sitar, and I’ve found it with my best friend Rob Keenan. The freedom we both give each other allows for the most creativity,” Tyler Randall says. And creative their debut album is as it roams vast musical spaces with great influences and originality. Irresistible.
