Swamp Dogg

Nov. 15

DJ, Electro Pop, R&B, Soul

What a time to be alive: R&B eccentric Swamp Dogg, whose recording career began in 1954 when he was only 12, has a new, self-explanatory album called Love, Loss, and Auto-Tune. Sonically and spiritually, it stretches across generations, almost absurdly so, much of it awash in Auto-Tune before closing with a cover of Hoagy Carmichael's 1927 song "Stardust." Yes, some of the album is amusingly awkward ("Sex with Your Ex"), but other spots effectively use Auto-Tune as a tool for conveying emotion. With MMYYKK and Har Mar Superstar (DJ set).
