Dr. Something Writes the Folky Prescriptions We Need





Dr. Something Writes the Folky Prescriptions We Need

Atmospheric in every sense of the word, Dr. Something's minimalist chamber folk pop takes on strange artistic sensibilities with aural novelty mixed with a slight cat-crazy Tumblr aesthetic. Clarinet, keys and accordian are the gold, silver and bronze winners of her instrumental outfit. Yet it's the eclectically toned pitch of Miss Dr. Something herself, Alison Dennis, that elevates its sapid qualities.

Since Dennis is well versed in all things musically weird (previously coming from the strange Dr. Something & the Pipin’ Hot Love Engines and Coney Island Cartel), the ways in which Dr. Something satiates this oft empty hole left in the market make sense. Her self described "sad bastard piano pop" could very well inspire some bummer feelings if you're in the headspace for such, but it's tracks like the indelilble "Imperfect Skull" off of 2015's Tomorrow's Just Fiction, to the hauntingly fun filled "Here Comes Count Dracula" from October of this year, that make it hard to be sad.

Having a sound unlike that of run-of-the-mill folk pop, Dr. Something holds high regard in local odd sounds, making music integral to keeping Portland weird.
