Dogbite released a new EP this fall, and it’s amazing.

“LA EP,” a four-track release shows growth within Dogbite.

Phil Jones, frontman of the project, remains consistent with his dreamy production style.

The EP starts with “Warm, Wake Up.” As the track creeps up, and blooms like a flower, its grand production and lo-fi sound is reminiscent of a warm, summer morning.

In the middle the plot, the EP builds with, “Hunting Seasons” and “Cold Weather.” These songs immerse the listener into this release, with it’s crisp fall adoring sounds. The live instruments combined with the loving lyrics just pulls listeners in.

Dogbite wraps the release up with “LA Sounds,” which fades out so quickly, taking the listener back to quiet headphones.

One thing that’s really good about this album is the melancholy theme. Throughout this 13-minute release, the tracks bring me back to past loves, times with friends back home and happy memories that won’t come again.

“LA EP” is Dogbite’s first release as a four-piece band, which explains the sense of completion through the tracks.

This is definitely one to listen to on repeat.

Dogbite went on tour with Toro Y Moi last winter, and I feel like they were inspired. Not in the direct methods, but in evolving with every release. From their previous album, “Velvet Changes,” they’ve come a long way.

I’ve already ordered it on vinyl, and you should too.
