Cincinnati’s Dawg Yawp premiered their video for “Can’t Think” with Conan’s Team Coco. The video is their first to be released from their critically-acclaimed self-titled debut that was released last year on Old Flame Records.
“Can’t Think” was named one of the top 100 songs local NPR stations were playing in 2016. The track originally premiered via Consequence of Sound, who called Randall a “master sitarist” and said “…he brings the instrument into his songwriting to create sounds that can only be described as completely original.”
The duo of Rob Keenan and Tyler Randall has been deemed “…one of the most original and intricately considered bands in Cincinnati’s musical history” by their local alt-weekly CityBeat.
Last year, Bob Boilen of NPR Music’s All Songs Considered premiered the band’s cover of The Stanley Brother’s “East Virginia Blues.” Boilen stated, “On paper, the idea of a sitar-guitar Appalachian folk duo may seem puzzling, but in the hands of Dawg Yawp, it works.”
Dawg Yawp have also announced that they will appear at 2017’s SXSW music festival and conference, along with select dates to be announced soon.
