"Lonesome" (Dr. Dog). This song by Philly collective Dr. Dog is a wild rumination on how easy it is to be lonely. I saw them live recently, and I don't know if I have ever seen a performance so full of life. It's hard to capture it in a studio environment, but this gives an idea. Dr. Dog feels to me like boxcar rock, cold beer on a back porch band. Perfect listening as spring starts to rise.
