Art Rock Show – Blasphemy (Week 49)

Deze keer Kayo Dot, een van de meer interessante experimentele bands. De band brengt avant-gardistische collages van synth rock, doom metal, post-rock en jazz.

Robert Miklos van EverythingisNoise: “It’s difficult to accurately portray in words the sort of shifting musical mammoth which Kayo Dot is. Since the band’s inception some sixteen years ago as the continuation of maudlin of the Well, each album has had a unique sound and vibe attached to it. So much so that it is impossible to categorize the band as a whole, stylistically speaking. More recently, with the release of Coffins on Io and subsequently Plastic House on Base of Sky we see the band leaning away from their harsher tendencies. This is accomplished while retaining their hallmark vibe, which could only be described as this surrealistic drama that is drenched in an oddball feeling of melancholy. (…)

Kayo Dot is a massive shifting mammoth whose identity and musical prowess cannot ever be properly encapsulated into words, but nevertheless I hope my take does at least an inch of justice. After being somewhat disenchanted with the last two releases, Blasphemy reassured me that the band is still bent on having experimentation and innovation at the forefront of its scope, regardless of shape or presentation. Blasphemy isn’t as dense or as challenging as some of its predecessors, but it shimmers with its unique stylistic characteristics – as every release of the band does. If you’re looking for forward-thinking tunes, look no further.”
