Blank Dogs - on 4:2:2
This sold out immediately from the source in Denmark...like 2 days. The only place I could still find it even listed was fusetron.
The number of steady releases by Blank Dogs is seriously staggering. I'm listening to Setting fire to your house, and even everything on the LP, I hear this home recorded industrial Cure sound. The guitars especially remind me of a lot of those early singles from 'Standing on a Beach'. But then it has nothing to do with any of that. It's dark, and just great song construction...weird sounds...I love the lyric quality, and then the onslought of 7 inches...I don't know why, but I'm after it all. It's exciting, and catchy and sounds completely contemporary. The bleeding egde of sound... like listening to the future.
On his blog, Mike Sniper constantly posts weirdo recordings that inspired him. I don't know where this is going or where this will end up, but all the attention is deserved and stands out completely alone and awesome.
