Doctor Dunbar's Medicine Band - "Sticks and Stones"
(Ant Nest Records, CDEP)
From Aural Innovations #34 (August 2006)
DDMB is a pop rock band from Lund, Sweden. This EP features 5 tracks in 16 minutes and has very nice production. The band have been around since 1999 and produced 4 demos and one full length CD (in 2005). This material is pretty much straight up 70's inspired rock music with a little strangeness thrown in (mostly by the cool keyboard lines) with a melodic pop edge. Not as mainstream sounding as awful Danish pop (thankfully!) but probably poppy enough to get on Swedish radio. Well played.
