Trophy Dad: Dogman
The second EP from Madison, WI band Trophy Dad. While Trophy Dad recorded their debut in a matter of days, they took their time with Dogman, and it shows. Put together over the span of a year, the extended development led to some shuffling around of the band’s lineup. Henry Stoehr, who produced their first EP and their latest, was added as a guitarist, and drummer Justin Huber came into the picture after their original one left. Dogman was self-recorded in basements just like Shirtless Algebra Fridays, but it sounds lush and punchy in a way that their debut doesn’t, and that clarity works really well with the band’s dueling approach to building songs.
