Bonus MP3: Pet Hospital -- "Bird Song"
Pet Hospital is a young and promising local act. It's also the reason Lion Dog Records was launched. (Stephanie Alexander)
Lion Dog Records is the newest label in the DFW area, and it started for one very specific reason: to put out Pet Hospital's first EP Dry Bones. I wrote about the Pet Hospital guys when I caught them at Dada a few weeks back and left impressed. Although the label has since expanded--it now claims to boast recordings from a bunch of local acts we've never heard of, except for, impressively enough, The Slack--it looks like Pet Hospital is still the flagship act on the roster, as, well, its EP is the only thing currently offered in the label's online store. But it's not a bad start. Download the track below--it's the first on Dry Bones--and see for yourself.
It's yours to keep. -- Pete Freedman
