Tulsa rock quartet Dachshund has never quite fit alongside their local peers. In a scene dominated by jazz, roots-rock, blues, and country, they pursue a less-trodden path, fusing the grooves of progressive-rock and new-wave to the hooks of classic '60s pop and the '90s underground

Songwriters Ryan Dannar and Eric Hartley each have their own unique styles; Dannar often opts for a kind of Bowie-esque tunefulness, while Hartley's creations are often heavier and more direct. Their styles complement each other well -- representing both ends of the indie/garage-rock spectrum, as well as many spots in-between. With Dannar and Hartley on vocals and guitar, the band's sounds is rounded-out by the nimble and authoritative rhythm-section of Matt Mayo (bass) and Jason Booze (drums).

Dachshund's 2011 debut, "The Ballad of Shorty Long," introduced the band's wry, off-kilter songwriting aesthetic. Their 2016 follow-up, "Crooked House," is a more ambitious album, which finds the band moving into territory more of their own making.
