Dagwood is a pretty new punk band but they’ve got some great songs already. Here’s where they started off with a three song demo. As far as demos go the recording is pretty good, you can definitely tell it’s a demo but quality wise it’s on the higher end of what you’d expect. All three of these songs are really good, the opening track ‘No Brain’ is a little standard but it’s tight. The second track, ‘Bone Dry’ is awesome; it’s easily the best song on this thing. It just seems to have more heart than the other two songs (not that they’re hollow by any measure). The third song ‘Yesterday’s Energy’ has a lot of great stuff going on in it. There are even some almost metal riffs, but mostly the song has more or less a post-punk type of feel to it. I wouldn’t call this band pop punk, but that is probably what you should lean toward when you’re thinking in the punk rock spectrum when trying to find Dagwood. If this demo is any indication there’s going to be a lot of really good stuff coming out of this band.
