Campdogzz - Union Pool
August 08, 2018 - Brooklyn
Campdogzz are dialed into the bleak, spirited heart of the industrial Midwest. The Chicago-based five- piece band harbors driving rhythms, insistent dual guitars set in intriguing arrangements, and the haunting, evocative voice of Tulsa, OK-native Jess Price. Her melodies take on the shape of a storm making its way in -- and out just as soon. There's a feeling of electricity, of winds shifting, a magical mix of both comfort and unease. In Rounds, Campdogzz's sophomore album, was written partially in Chicago but mostly throughout the Southwest as Price and guitarist/vocalist Mike Russell traveled, post-tour, in the schoolbus that used to serve as their band van. Engulfed by desert, this starkness -- like Price's native Oklahoma -- couldn't help but seep into the songs. It was a period of collective change for the band as relationships began and ended, people moved and planted new roots. Everyone experienced some sort of massive life shift and the album serves as a reflection of that period, of growth and patience.
