Dog is an American rock band based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States. Its lineup consists of Toby Leaman (bass guitar), Scott McMicken (lead guitar), Frank McElroy (rhythm guitar), Zach Miller (keyboard), and Eric Slick (drums).
Album number five for the Philadelphia-based quintet and critical opinion Stateside is divided: 'Entertainment Weekly' declared 'Fate' an "expertly honed tribute to the past", while 'Slant' magazine called it "phenomenally uninteresting". It all depends on where you stand on bands who can't escape their influences: in this case, the Band, the Beatles, the Beach Boys and Wilco (whose Jeff Tweedy is a fan). So yes, this is often unoriginal, derivative even.

Sound - 9 Dr. Dog's latest album, Fate, is an incredible ride through musical history, both past and present. While each song is a throw-back to another era, echoing the sounds of such greats as The Beatles, Cream, The Band, and more, Dr. Dog keep the album lively and ever-changing, breathing new life and excitement into each and every track. Following The Breeze is one of the real gems of the album, Hang On, a soulful tune filled with bluesy piano, catchy guitar hooks, and a funky bass line. The parallels between this song and The Band are so evident that it would be hard not to think this was perhaps an unreleased track leftover from the '70s. Lyrically, this song is one of the strongest as well, but I will go more into that later.
What Dr. Dog and its principal songwriters McMicken and Toby Leaman have done is carry on a tradition of soulful writing and musicianship. For now, it looks like Dr. Dog will stick to their sunny, over-produced pop songs, finding safe ground, pitching tent, and making camp for the night.
