Zach Miller and Scott McMicken are members of the Philadelphia band Dr. Dog. Their music synthesizes the sounds of the 1960s and 70s with contemporary influences, and they've built a major following over the past ten years. Their latest album is Shame, Shame.
JESSE THORN: It’s the sound of Young America, I’m Jesse Thorn. My guests are Scott McMicken and Zach Miller, members of the band Dr. Dog. They’re a lovely, friendly, happy feeling; although sometimes sad lyricized band from Philadelphia. Their new album is called Shame, Shame. Let’s hear one of the singles from the record, “Stranger.”
Scott, Zach, welcome to the Sound of Young America. It’s great to have you here.
ZACH MILLER: Thanks for having us, Jesse.
SCOTT McMICKEN: Thanks for having us.
