Album Notes
Dot Dash -- Winter Garden Light (beauty 22)

Second Album in a Year by Washington D.C.-based Post Punk Pop Band...

Winter Garden Light is Dot Dash’s second album. Recorded over a few days in Summer 2012 at Lord Baltimore Studios, a hub of that city’s art, punk and indierock scenes, it follows the band’s debut long player (spark>flame>amber>ash, issued by The Beautiful Music in Sept. 2011) by less than a year.

Reviews for Dot Dash’s first album included comparisons to The Jam, The dB’s, Wire, The Byrds, and Joy Division, among others. While retaining elements of the debut, the 10-track Winter Garden Light also covers new ground. As before, Dot Dash’s intense, melodic, energetic songs are shrouded in a prevailing melancholy but they’re now underpinned by a new dynamism — the poppy ones are poppier, the dark ones are darker, the loud ones louder.

Moving forward, Dot Dash hopes to keep making records (they’re already performing new songs live, written after Winter Garden Light was recorded) and playing shows. Over the last year or so they’ve played with The Drums, Urge Overkill, The Chameleons, Frankie Rose, Allo Darlin’, Hugh Cornwell, The Trash Can Sinatras, The Godfathers, Jack Grisham, and From The Jam, among many others — including appearances at the NYC Popfest and Chickfactor anniversary shows.

Based in Ottawa, The Beautiful Music has been releasing records for a little over 10 years. Winter Garden Light by Dot Dash is the label’s 22nd release.
