Cobbled together from pieces of lates and greats such as the Russians, Black Eyes and Neckties and, most notably, the instrumental juggernaut that was Cicadas, Dog Shredder is an amalgamation of disparate musical elements that taste great together. Imagine the aural experiments of Sonic Youth coupled with a Sabbath-style dB beat down. Imagine the ferocity of punk applied with the precision of prog. Imagine scalpel-sharp arrangements delivered cinder block heavy.

"Brass Tactics is the mark of an exhilarating new voice that's fun, ferocious, and ultimately exhausting in the most satisfying kind of way... proof that ambition and skill don't automatically cancel out heart." -Pitchfork
"So good I can't stop laughing." -SoundOnTheSound
"Big 'ole minus points for the name." -Blistering.com
