Dead Dog - Don't Touch Me

Dead Dog is from Athens, Georgia and seem to join the garage rock team with noisy guitar and vocals that are just slightly off key.  The production quality is very raw and fits the genre well.

For the most part Dead Dog features a lead female vocal that can provide a anything between light crooning to excitable yelling. There's also a male vocalist that takes the reigns for a few songs and, although there is contrast, the varying vocals sound pretty consistent. 

This is music that doesn't seem to take itself too seriously and mostly focused on providing that fun, "get up and go" to it's listener.  At times I'm reminded of bands like the Dead Milkmen or Screaming Females, though this seems a little more streamlined and direct.

Get it here.
