Seattle’s Sundogs out with 2nd album, Legends in Their Own Minds.

With musical influences from the greats of classic rock, blues, and jazz, including Miles Davis, Led Zeppelin, Bob Marley, Tom Petty, the Rolling Stones, John Coltrane, and the Beatles, indie rockers the Sundogs have blended a cool rock, jazz fusion sound reminiscent of the aforementioned recording artists and the periods of 1970s and ’80s.

That sound is alive and kicking on the Sundogs’ recent released 14-track album entitled Legends In Their Own Minds, the band’s second to date.

Additionally, Legends In Their Own Minds is both an audio and video album. The videos were shot during the recording sessions using green screens, and all videos have post-production computer graphic images (CGI) including in it.

The opening song, Fallen Here is remindful of the music of the Rolling Stones and the Black Crowes, with its bluesy vibes and steady rock beat, mixed in with a classic piano solo, followed by a well-done guitar solo as well.

The next tune, Snowman provides more of the hip guitar riffs, courtesy of Stan Snow, for which the group is becoming known.

Johnny is another ode to the classic rock era, featuring its driving, relentless guitar work and upbeat drumming, with accompained excellence studio musicians.

Overall, Legends in Their Own Minds is worth owning, for sure.
