Philadelphia's Dr. Dog has drawn glowing comparisons to legendary groups — The Beatles, Pavement, Guided by Voices — across the spectrum of rock. Formed in 1999 as a side project of another band, the group soon became a local favorite, eventually breaking out after touring with My Morning Jacket's Jim James in 2004.

Dr. Dog's subsequent albums achieved critical success; on Fate, the group recalled elements of psychedelic pop, while on Shame, Shame it embraces the slacker rock of the early '90s. The band's next record, Be the Void, comes out on Feb. 7. Hear Dr. Dog preview its new record live in concert from WXPN and World Cafe Live.
