Look Out! This band's out of sight!

"All You Need Is Ears", the stunning debut album by The Dead Polka Dogs dropped earlier this month, providing a refreshing twist to the music industry! Unlike most albums of the day which provide 1-2 listenable songs cushioned by 8-10 bits of mediocre fluff, "All You Need Is Ears" is packed full of hits. "Nu-God" is appealing, "St. Sigmund" has a pleasant mix of modern techno beats and strong vocals, and I think we've all been "Tolerant Ted" at one point. Beyond the brass and bright musical instruments we find lyrics deeper than Freud's list of excuses is long. Forget the single serving pop you've been listening to because you can't get the message of this kind of songwriting from one or two listens. Listen to this album for a few weeks and you might just become the loser from the bad city. Don't worry though, they've got a "Crazy Kind Of Love" down there. Fun yet deep lyrics coupled with beautiful music spanning a wide range of genres make "All You Need Is Ears" a candidate for the best album of 2015, and it's only May! What are you waiting for, all you need is ears!
