American rock band based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States, Dr. Dog, has shared a the cover of “Here Comes The Hotstepper,” their take on the ’90s Jamaican dance hall track by Ini Kamoze.
Earlier this year, the Philadelphia band Dr. Dog announced that they were retiring from touring after a long string of dates that start next week and will take them through the end of the year, when they’ll perform a four-night residency in their home city. But it appears that, despite no longer performing live, they are still going to be a band. And they recently released a cover of “Here Comes The Hotstepper,” their take on the ’90s Jamaican dance hall track by Ini Kamoze.
Its lineup consists of Toby Leaman (bass guitar), Scott McMicken (lead guitar), Frank McElroy (rhythm guitar), Zach Miller (keyboard), and Eric Slick (drums).
Lead vocal duties are shared between Leaman and McMicken, with all members contributing harmonies. In addition, each band member has a nickname beginning with the letter T, and they have explained that friends of the band also receive nicknames, which are drawn from aspects of their lives and personalities.
The band’s musical styling of indie rock is strongly influenced by bands of the 1960s, such as The Beatles and The Beach Boys, but they have also touched upon more unrelated genres since their inception.
Their earlier recordings show influence of the lo-fi sound and pop sensibilities of indie rock bands of the 1990s, such as Guided by Voices and Pavement, although recent albums have featured more polished production.
