Dog Bite summons 'Disorder' with Joy Division cover

Posted By on Fri, Aug 30, 2013 at 10:36 AM

As Dog Bite prepares to release the product of a one-day recording session in California, a project aptly titled LA EP, the band offers something to hold fans over. A few weeks ago Phil Jones, Jonathan Merenivitch, Woody Shortride, and Tak Takemura were tucked away in what was once a garage, but now a functional recording studio getting ready for a show at Atlanta's cavernous Drunken Unicorn. Woven in between the practicing's of new and old material Dog Bite lays down a sonorous cover of "Disorder" originally recorded Joy Division.

While the band's temporary environment noticeably influenced their new material, the texture of their recording remains warmly pleasing, like a fallen leaf baking in the sun on one of autumn's earliest days. Their cover of "Disorder" is carried by Shortridge's adherence to the infectious bass line and the bands ability to leave just the right amount of personality on an '80s classic. Jones slips comfortably into Ian Curtis' lyrics singing them with an earned confidence before the songs rumbustious ending.
