The Tryout: Stray Dogg
Is Stray Dogg the next big thing? Does the Serbian group stand out from the crowd? No. Not really. But it's some solid folksy music and, better yet, their album is available for free download.
It's some nice indie folk music that I think could make some inroads since the lyrics are simple and accessible to even the teeniest of boppers. Also, the songs are concise and radio friend, most clocking in at only about two minutes and change. The first song "Drunk" has a bit of a Jeff Buckley feel but overall I'd say it's closer to Paolo Nutini's first album. It's a nice debut for an indie band and I'll definitely be keeping an ear out for their next release. Anyway, check out the album for yourself.
