A few months ago, I introduced you to "The Mayfair House Sessions" in which Asbury Park singer / songwriter, Dan Matlack, brings musicians into his home studio to write and record an original song. The series debuted with a duet between Matlack and Lowlight's Renee Maskin; and, since then, has featured collaborations with Sal Boyd, Tara Dente, Zach Westfall, and more.
The latest product to emerge from Mayfair House is a brand new single from Asbury Park's Dentist. The band worked with Matlack and Westfall to produce "Pullout." Somewhere between Pixies and the surfy garage rock of a band like (Dentist's beloved heroes) Mrs. Magician, the song features some hard-charging rhythm guitar paired with tension-building leads. Emily Bornemann's vocals are right up front and come down much more on the garage rock than the dream pop side of the spectrum.
"Pullout" is a bit of a departure for Dentist that still manages to remain true to the band's sound, showing that -- fresh off the release of a brand new record -- Dentist's creative juices are still flowing.
Listen to "Pullout" below, and check out the Mayfair House Sessions Soundcloud page to keep up with everything Dan Matlack and friends are doing over there.
Dentist's latest LP, Ceilings, is out now on Little Dickman Records. It's available from the Little Dickman store and from whichever is your favorite place to purchase downloadable music.
