About Scott McMicken and THE EVER-EXPANDING's Another One
Scott McMicken thrives on switching things up. As a founding member of Philadelphia rock mainstays Dr. Dog, McMicken and his bandmates consistently explored new sounds and new ways of writing songs across 10 gleefully eclectic albums before their 2021 hiatus. While McMicken has always quietly released solo projects via cassette and vinyl on his own label Press On Records, he’s now done something he’s only done once before: start a band.
Originally written during his tenure with Dr. Dog about getting out of writer’s block, the first song by the newly named Scott McMicken and THE EVER – EXPANDING is called “Another One.” The track takes on new meaning in this full-band context, as the kinetic and joyful song boasts a buoyant groove and a horn section while McMicken sings: “Once the morning powers wake up / And the hours flower on / A moment's all we are to take up / And here comes another one.”
