Third Man Records Presents: The Dough Rollers - "Little Lily" (AXS Live Session)




When I hear the phrase "The Dough Roller," I almost instantly think of the chain of family-friendly breakfast-lunch-and-dinner restaurants that are littered up and down the Coastal Highway in Ocean City, Maryland where my friends and I go for bi-annual car shows nearly every May and October. While The Dough Rollers (emphasis on the extra "s") are the latest budding band to release a Blue Series 7-inch record on Jack White's Nashville-based Third Man Records. Hailing from New York and fronted by Malcolm Ford, The Dough Rollers are somehow able to effortlessly forge a unique blend of revivalist Rock "N" Roll in the same vein as bands like The Black Keys, Hanni el Khatib, and Kings of Leon. Noisey, who premiered A-side "Little Lily" just last week quite fittingly described it as a "song [that] simultaneously kicks you in the face and makes you reconsider your life in college for not becoming a rockstar;" although a slightly more contemporary description might be something like Iggy & The Stooges meets Foo Fighters. But when it comes down to it, "Little Lily" is just a down and dirty Rock "N" Roll stomper, which is now available for pre-order from Third Man and should ship by or before July 9th. No word just yet on a full-length, but The Dough Rollers seem to have a handful of tracks prepped for their blistering live shows: "Not So Smart," "Got Me a Bag," "Knock On Wood," "Rosie," "Where Shall I Be?" (2010) and "She's Your Cook."
