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
