The Casual Dots Sanguine Truth
The Casual Dots aka the supergroup of Christina Billotte (Slant 6, Quix*o*tic), Kathi Wilcox (Bikini Kill, The Julie Ruin) and Steve Dore (Deep Lust) have just announced their first new record in 18 years, Sanguine Truth. Along with this announcement is the additional news that their infectious 2004 self titled debut will also be re-issued, appearing on vinyl for the first time. The band had done some reunion shows back in 2016 but has stayed relatively quiet as a group in the time period between the two records.
The first single “Frequency of Fear” recalls the same C86ish, bouncy sound of their previous work and is an infectious ear worm with Billotte’s pleasant vocals along side a snappy lead guitar lick. The album was engineered DC legend Don Zientara and mixed/produced by Guy Picciotto of Fugazi, with additional production and engineering for vocals by Eli Crews.
Sanguine Truth is available for pre-order now and will release in full on 9/23 via Ixor Stix Records. Listen below to the single and the first album.
