In advance of their March 15 gig at D.C.'s Velvet Lounge, here'a new song by D.C.'s own Dot Dash.
The sound on this iPhone recording isn't the best in the world and it might be the reason that "The Sound in Shells" sounds a bit like some way poppier version of what you hear on an old Joy Division bootleg. Still, bad sound or not that instrumental breakdown in the cut is really cool -- a lot of crashing cymbals and waves of guitar noise.
Dot Dash are already set to open for the legendary The Monochrome Set in NYC in May. More details of that gig are sure to follow later.
