Blank Dogs

MP3: “Heat and Depression”

Blank Dogs is mainly a one-man recording project by songwriter Mike Sniper from Brooklyn, NY. Since 2006 he’s released a steady stream LP’s, EP’s and singles as well as appearing on several compilations. Live, Blank Dogs is currently a three-piece band featuring Pamela Garavano-Coolbaugh and Craig Mileski. The music could be described as dark-pop with cold synth lines, surfy guitar hooks and angular basslines. Blank Dogs has released records on such distinguished labels as In The Red, Woodsist, Troubleman, Sacred Bones and the band’s own Captured Tracks imprint. The newest release is the 12″ EP Phrases, just released on Captured Tracks. The band is currently putting the finishing touches on a new full-length album, which should see the light of day via Captured Tracks later this year.
