As they approach their twentieth anniversary, CAKE’s adherence to their original guiding principles has only grown stronger. Formed during the nineties as a somewhat antagonistic answer to grunge, CAKE’s democratic processes, defiant self-reliance, and lucid yet ever-inventive music has made them a nation-state unto themselves, with no obvious peers, belonging to no school.  In addition to writing, arranging, producing, and performing their own music, they have taught themselves to engineer their recording projects in their own solar-powered studio, which actually generates more power than is needed to run it, causing the building’s electrical meter to run in reverse. CAKE’s most recent album, Showroom of Compassion, debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 Album Chart and was touted as “deadpan brilliance” by the New Yorker. The band is currently in the recording studio working on their ninth album due for release in 2017.

Dr. Dog’s latest album could very have been their first. It could have been their only album; or it could have never been made at all. It’s either a refined culmination of 15 years of collaborative music-making or the blunt instrument on which they cut their teeth. This chicken v. egg debate will be for historians to decide; fact is that if “The Psychedelic Swamp” was a half-baked idea back in 2001, it has been reborn in 2016, fully baked.
