Dog Adrift is a new group from New York City, led by Mike Quoma and featuring members of The Unsacred Hearts, Balthrop, Alabama, Dean and Britta, and more. Musically, as Travis points out in the interview, they land somewhere in Chicago/Thrill Jockey territory, playing complex, jazz-derived instrumental songs that wind their wind through tempos, genres, and emotions. Most importantly, the band asks Travis the big question: what’s the story behind that great Serious Business jingle?
Featured song: “Spirit Brokers”
Dog Adrift has several digital singles available on the their Bandcamp page.
