Official press release: The last time we spoke on Kayo Dot the band had just arrived in Seattle to begin recording their second full-length for Hydra Head Records. Now, the record is entirely finished, titled "Coyote," and scheduled to be released in February 2010. Kayo Dot will be performing tracks from "Coyote" throughout their advancing European tour. These new compositions again reveal Kayo Dot's uncanny ability to expand on previously released material while dramatically steering their musical motivations in entirely unique directions. I'm familiar with the comparisons to bands like Ulver and Sunn 0))), but ultimately there is no comparing "Coyote." This thing stands out, and on its own! Draw a ven-diagram why don't you, I guarantee very few descriptive words/facts will land in that little space where the circles overlap. The rather impossible thing here is that the band recorded a full-length late in 2008 ("Blue Lambency Downward"), "Coyote "hits early 2010 and the band is already in the process of writing another full-length! For a band as remarkable as Kayo Dot, that takes an immeasurable amount of initiative and inventiveness. Last, but not least, the record was recorded by Randall Dunn (Sunn O))), Earth, Six Organs Of Admittance Kayo Dot, Mamiffer, Wolves in the Throne Room).
