We’re still a few months away from the official release of A Giant Dog‘s new album Pile, their first on Merge Records. Yesterday, the lead single for the record was posted to YouTube and it’s every bit as fun as you’d expect from the Austin rockers. The tune blends the piano jams of early Elton John with a lo-fi punk attitude. It feels as free and loose as A Giant Dog’s live spectacle, which is exactly what this single needed to be.
Pile comes out on May 6th, but you can pre-order it here.
If you dig the song and want to know more about the band, check out their website. You can also hear an interview I did with the band when we were in Austin for Fun Fun Fun Fest.
