Dog Day – “Final Fight”

The new Dog Day album, Deformer, is officially up for grabs at the band’s Web site (CDs are ready but vinyl is still being pressed).

If their last few releases are any indication, this new one’s gonna be unstoppable, but it’ll at least be a very different affair than its chilly, squealing, cerebral predecessor, Concentration; the four-piece Dog Day arrangement has been whittled down to a twosome: founding couple Seth Smith and Nancy Urich.

This between-album release—“Final Fight”—didn’t make the cut for Deformer, but let’s hope it shows up on a subsequent EP; it’s one of the best (albeit most simple) tunes Smith and Urich have ever put together. We get a live, stairwell version of the song for this Mitch Fillion-produced video (it’s possible “Final Fight” was never officially recorded) and it’s the perfect fit for a number about a man who thinks he’s writing the last song of his life.
