With their 2014 sophomore effort, Painted Shut, Hop Along went from Philadelphia’s best kept secret to one of the most feverishly beloved bands on their circuit. Frances Quinlan & co.’s follow up, this year’s Bark Your Head Off, Dog, is just as heartfelt and brilliant, with four of its songs on display in this session with Stevie Zoom in the KEXP Live Room.
