Dot Dash’s 2018 LP ‘Proto Retro’ is easily the best of their career. For the prolific band, the album very much presents a turning point: they’ve dispensed with the punkier elements and Mod based experiments. Instead, ‘Proto Retro’ concentrates on the band’s power pop interests.
Power pop always made up a part of their sound, but there was sometimes a feeling that the more melodic charms were buried by rougher DIY elements. This time around, they’ve released a genuine winner of an album. [A full review of ‘Proto Retro can be found here. You can also listen to the album in full at the same link.]
