ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Dog Ear is where the Hi and the Lo desert come together. A courageous experimental collaboration and split, featuring the Desert Stoner Rock of Fever Dog and the Psychedelic Space Rock of 3rd Ear Experience. The bands met when performing at a tour fund raiser for local post rockers, the Tribesmen, in 2012. In the late hours of the night a friendship was formed based on admiration and respect. 3rd Ear Experience invited Fever Dog to open for them and the Truck Fighters at an added show in the Coachella Valley. At the after-show hang out in the balmy desert heat the first discussions of doing a collaboration were initiated. in the chilly winter of 2013 Fever Dog's drummer Joshua Adams (Blue Diamond) entered Star Lane Studios and stood before a drum kit designed by Robbi Robb, comprised of various African and Garafuna drums. To his surprise, with hardly a word spoken, the recording button was activated and the studio door closed behind him. 15 minutes later he emerged disheveled. Then Nathan Wood (Thunder Child), Fever Dog's bass guitarist, was shoved into the room, plugged his effects in and, with not much spoken, launched into an awesome pad of dark sonic bass over the tribal groove he was hearing for the first time. And so it went - one after the the other each musician entered the studio and got one take.

Dog Ear is the result of this free flowing recording session. Only one take, because in a free form jam one gets a single pass and then it is absorbed back into the universe. So it was that the members from each band got to enter into the fray and into a moment in time that will never return. Jorge Bassman of 3rd Ear Experience laid down a groovy cumbia like bass line that brought cheers from everyone. Amritakripa tied it all together with her psychedelic swirling between the guitars talking back and forth across the tribal canyon. When all were done Robbi entered the studio - trimmed the edges and pressed save - No mixing, no EQ'ing, no effecting. nothing more than"apple S" - save. Looking up at the tall Danny Graham (Golden Dove) with his long golden hair, Robbi got the nod of approval and the deed was done. Based on this collaborative piece each band then offered a piece of music each to sandwich the Dog Ear Jam.
