Dot Hacker

s/t EP

ORG Records

Dot Hacker is an L.A. band, and this is their debut EP, to be followed by a full-length album named Inhibition later this year. The band includes Josh Klinghoffer, Clint Walsh, Eric Gardner and Jonathan Hischke. Klinghoffer is currently on tour with the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

The band sounds like smoothed out take on bands like the Cocteau Twins, and My Bloody Valentine. But the smoothness is appealing simply because it has ease and grace, and not too much polish. It is a welcome sound, somewhat futuristic, if only because they aren’t drowning themselves in 70’s retro. All in all, a good debut, and one that makes me want to hear more from them. []
