Under the Radar spoke to Dr. Dog’s singer/guitarist Scott McMicken about the band’s new album, Shame, Shame, due out April 6 on ANTI-. When it came time to craft their latest record, the members of Philadelphia quintet were shooting for something different. Rather than lay down their latest batch of Beach Boys- and Beatles-inspired psych-pop themselves, as they’d done in the past, McMicken says the group decided to experiment with outside production.

“The studio craft side of it has been as much what we’re about as any other thing,” says McMicken. He adds that there was a “certain impulse with this album to focus less on the studio part of it and more on the bare bones mechanics of playing in a band. Essentially we wanted to be more musicians about the process rather than the engineering and all that; just to focus on sitting around in the room in our five positions rather than running around the room putting mics up and all that.”
