Remaining Time -0:00. Bark Your Head Off, Dog adds new characters to this gallery, but now they are painted in abstractions. Some of them seem to be Quinlan, seen at an angle or from the third-person- I was asleep with my mouth open the whole drive down, she remembers on The Fox in Motion. Some of them are angry men, a headspace she occupies with disarming ease. Many of them are just blips of color, impossible to either discern or forget. The album as a whole feels warmer, more spacious. The songs on Painted Shut were doled out like 10 fist-shaped car door dents, but Bark Your Head Off, Dog moves at an agitated hum. The band softens its pugilist’s stance and pokes at some of the folk roots that showed through on Get Disowned, their first album. There are flecks of mandolin, saloon piano, and the dusty caw of some fiddles on What the Writer Meant.

This 2018 release from indie-rock outfit Hop Along was the most pleasant surprise of an album for me. I had never heard of the band, and I stumbled upon the album while desperately trying to find something new to listen to on this site. Personally, it was one of my favourite records of 2018, and for good reason. Bark Your Head Off, Dog' is an album where storytelling is at the forefront, and that is something I love in music when it is done well. Lyrically, the album paints a rather enchanting.
