Local band takes it 'Easy'

Dogcatcher showcases laid-back jams on second album

by Nick Veronin

Just north of Highway 101, tucked into the back corner of a squat, unassuming strip of office space, Andrew Heine hunches over the piano, listing slightly to the quick rhythm of Ramon Esquivel's kick, snare and high-hat, and the bouncy, rapid punches of Jared Milos' bass guitar. Heine tickles the keys, coaxing out chords and melodic accents, which dance around the beat, linking with Ryan Kingsmith's acoustic guitar work, swinging about in the higher registers, as he croons in a quiet, gravely voice.

Dogcatcher captures the essence of 'cool', and I mean the classic 'cool'. Aside from the style of the songs themselves (which is excellent, flowing, and filled with life), the members of Dogcatcher each in their own way embody the oft chased but seldom captured coolness that led Django Reinhardt, Jeff Buckley, and the Rolling Stones to greatness. Great article about a great band. Rock on.
