Kayo Dot

Hubardo

    Post-rock, prog fusion, jazz and black metal: incorporates every style. Finally back in print, the seventh studio album by the veteran avant-garde band Kayo Dot. Meaning “lantern” or “lamp” in the Enochian language of 16th century magicians John Dee and Edward Kelley, Hubardo follows the epic and heartbreaking narrative of a meteor falling to earth and the alchemical transformation of a lonely poet observer. This album displays aspects of the band’s many forms, even moments that hark back to the act’s former identity, Maudlin of the Well (including an appearance by MOTW vocalist Jason Byron). It is a dizzying trip through genres and moods that blossoms in wild directions, an out-of-control chemical reaction. From beautiful post-rock passages and demented ballads to tripped-out 70s prog fusion, jazz and black metal, Hubardo masterfully incorporates just about every style imaginable during its nearly 100 minute run time. “After a decade of trying to live up to the precedent set by their debut, Kayo Dot has finally reached – and surpassed – the level of not only themselves, but of everyone else within their realm of music.”

    Trevor De Brauw

    Uptown

      Chicago-based guitarist Trevor Shelley de Brauw (Pelican, RLYR) has announced the release of his first solo album — a collection of power-ambient compositions entitled Uptown. The album is a stream of consciousness sustained for too long, an aural pendulum swinging between poles of murky distress and cathartic resolve that take shape somewhere in the hazy valleys between rock, ambient and experimental music. Trevor de Brauw’s twenty-year musical career has manifested as an exploration of the vast possibilities of the guitar.

      This release departs from the riff-oriented songwriting of Pelican, taking a plaintive approach that unravels the meditative depth of washed-out riffs, deconstructed drones, and carefully controlled feedback. The album delves into complex dimensions of deeply layered textures: an evocation of haunting melodicism that shares more common ground with Brian Eno’s ambient work and drone wizards Barn Owl than it does a metal record. “Powerful drones are balanced with delicate guitar riffs. Savor every detail or zone out completely, you’ll find it’s equally rewarding in entirely different ways.” —FACT" First solo record from Pelican’s Trevor de Brauw, written and recorded over the span of nearly a decade.


      For fans of Brian Eno, Barn Owl. Artwork by Aaron Turner (ISIS, Sumac, Hydra Head Records).
