Man's Gin - Smiling Dogs

Profound Lore, 2010

Solid mix of folk, blues, country, southern and gothic rock.

"Formed by Erik Wunder of Cobalt, Man's Gin finds him in a decidedly different but no less captivating light. 'Smiling Dogs' is good old singer-songwriter stuff, reminiscent of Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds meets acoustic Alice In Chains meets Tom Waits meets Drive By Truckers, but only truly recognizable as Man's Gin, which already carves out its own niche in this realm..."
