It’s going down on the permanent record

They may be taking this "Golden" thing a bit literally
R.I.P. Paste Magazine. Despite its tendency to be too liberal with positive reviews, I’m going to miss it. I always hoped I’d write for it one day.

Here’s “Permenant Record” a skittish, shrieky rocker from Toronto’s the Golden Dogs. It’s got yelping vocals, pummeling start-stop verses, and a quirky breakdown with some goofy sounding keyboard leads. Once these fireworks are over, the song ends with a brief, mellowed-out coda. The track comes from this year’s Coat of Arms. It’s a stellar tune, and not just because the title reminds me of “Kiss Off” by Violent Femmes (I hope you know this will go down on your permanent record).

These Dogs have plenty of bite to back up their bark (sorry, bad metaphor), not to mention an extremely golden publicity picture (left).
