Dopapod Tuesday shared pro-shot footage from the group’s live debut of “Fannie,” recorded at Mr. Smalls Theater in Pittsburgh, PA on January 29. The single, released earlier this month, will appear on the band’s upcoming self-titled album, which will be released on May 27.
“Fannie” appeared in both slots of the second set, coming out of the frame opening “Grow”. Emerging from the ethereal end-of-jam soundscape, guitarist Rob Compa warned the audience that the band was going to try out a new track, “It’s just for you guys, you’re the first to hear it.”
Thanks to technology, however, all of Dopafam can take advantage of the strange new composition, which has floated in some Floydian territories before Eli Winderman broke it on the clavinet. Compa remained an active participant in the extended narrative with his David Gilmour guitar strokes. An experience of delayed gratification, “Fannie” proved to be a slow-burning second set in Dopapod’s ever-growing catalog.
