Searchlight, the new album from Dot Dash, is out now on The Beautiful Music. It’s the Washington D.C.-based band’s fifth album in less than five years; all of them released by Ottawa-based The Beautiful Music, and marks the label’s 36th release. Recorded over a weekend (March 5th and 6th) at North Carolina’s Fidelitorium Studios and produced by Missy Thangs (Ex Hex, Ian McLagan), the 15-track Searchlights is Dot Dash’s most varied, expansive album yet.
While the quartet’s combination of adroitly poppy melodies with an often visceral instrumental attack (drawing comparisons to The Jam, Big Star, and The Replacements along the way) remains undiminished, Searchlights reaches further – comprising a broader range of musical dynamics than previous Dot Dash albums.
On the live front, Dot Dash has played with The B-52s, Tommy Keene, The Fleshtones, Ash, The Psychedelic Furs, The Chameleons, The Dickies, Hugh Cornwell, The Monochrome Set, Stiff Little Fingers, Glen Matlock, The Bats, Sylvain Sylvain, Urge Overkill, The Drums, The Trashcan Sinatras, Frankie Rose, The Clientele, Drivin’n’Cryin’, The Empty Hearts, Matt Pond PA, Moon Duo, Soulside, Chris Stamey, Wax Idols, and The Supersuckers, among many others, and “Flowers” from the band’s 2015 album, Earthquakes & Tidal Waves, was recently included in the soundtrack of IFC-TV comedy Benders.
Five albums so far, all released by The Beautiful Music:
