Kayo Dot completes new album

Thu, September 24, 2009 9:27 AM PT3,839 views

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).

Good band. Saw them play some of this stuff live a while back, it's pretty weird.

i could see where this band might be boring live... but this should be an interesting listen, as were the last two albums. will buy.

I would be more excited for this album if the press release weren't so self-consciously pretentious.

enjoyed the last 2 records a lot as well, no interest in seeing live, but will be looking forward to coyote and the other full length they are working on.

This will def. be great. Hopefully stepped up from Blue Lambency. That record was ehh, ok, but nothing COMPARED TO Dowsing Anemone.

ive seen them twice. once running their own sound in the lobby of a bowling alley in detroit (mind blowing performance), and once at a major bar/venue (where they sounded like shit basically)

Can't wait for this!

100% guarantee that your musical taste is garbage if you are not excited about this.
