Featuring Jean Smith on "some guitar" but otherwise sticking to the tried-and-true setup, with Dovetail, Mecca Normal show how time and experience has made its music grow in new and equally compelling directions. Coming out as it did in 1992, Dovetail won some attention in the press concurrent with the public attention given to riot grrrl, but the duo itself wasn't making any bid for stardom, underground or otherwise.
