The Black Dog discussion


Recommended Posts

I can't get enough of these people. Over these past weeks I have been taking a deep dive into their discog again and they have some of my fav records of all time. Spanners takes the cake with Silenced as a close second. I love all of these projects so much. Music for adverts is defo the most underrated one of them all.

 

What is your favorite?

What is your least favorite?

What do you love or hate about their music?

Great! Thanks for the tip. I've been a huge fan since "Spanners", but I was obsessed with "Liber Dogma" and this past winter I had "Conspiracy Tapes Live" and "Conspiracy Tapes RMX" on a loop. 

Looking forward to digging into this and the follow-up in a month!

Pretty good album imo, not that huge into minimal techno since i feel like it sounds a bit derivative and too simple at times but i can appreciate this

Really remarkable how the opening of "Constructivist" sounds a lot like the opening of Autechre's "latentcall" from elseq 4.

The Black Dog is one of those weird cases (and I have many such cases) where they've produced one of my all time favourite trax that I've listened to hundreds of times (Otaku) but I've never listened to one of their albums

Totally echo these sentiments. This is the first Black Dog album that has floored me in a long time. Porn Shop is a gem, isn’t it?

Radio Scarecrow and Further Vexations are very good of their recent (oh wtf it's over a decade already) output. Some fillers, but the best tracks are amazing. I could listen to "Skin clock" 1000 times and not be tired of it.

"Cognitive Dissonance" of Post-Truth is such a freaking belter, too. One of my favorite tracks in recent history by any artist. Play it loud, and the sun just keeps on rising, again and again.

I never listened to PostTruth. I read some grumpy comments about how it sounded like old musicians tried to keep up with the new trends and that the old TBD sounds were completely missing. But perhaps I should give it a spin.

Post-Plaid Blag Dog always a bit hit or miss for me. But when they hit, they really hit.

Yeah, for me too; most of their albums are a bit of a mixed bag, but there are always some stellar numbers sprinkled across them.

And the new one actually seems pretty cohesive so far, got a nice flow to it too.

Fav album probably Tranklements (sp?) actually.

Hm, I never got into that one cause it seemed especially ragtag. Will try again.

      I should have probably posted this on the music discussion, but as were such a central part of the dog in the past, i think it's in the right place.
       
      Are there any early interviews around the interwebs? scans? anything?

      Artist : Paranerd
      Title: Silktrops
      Label: Touched Music
      Cat no: TM38
      Format: CD 100 Only/Digital
      Country: U.K.
      Style: IDM/Electronica Release Date August 25th 2017
       
      Description.
      The excellent Touched Music for Macmillan Cancer Support, standby to release the third album by Canadian producer Paranerd, ‘Silktrops’. It’s dropping this week on CD and digital formats, with striking, colourful cover art and a promise to provide acid, ambient, braindance music.
      From the first track, Paul Goguen delivers on all fronts, with funky, laid back beats, reminiscent of early Detroit techno and lush interweaving pads and melodies. If braindance music is the ability of it to transport the listener to a faraway place with disco dancing astronauts, ‘Droid Shop’, ‘Fmeem’ and ‘Silktrops’ pack in enough dream inducing ambience and head bopping rhythm, to take you there instantly (wherever ‘there’ is for you!).
      The pace drops a few BPMs for the beautiful ‘Bellint’, awash with atmosphere and echo, a subtle vocal sample and some stunning detuned melodies. The melodies seemingly cross the divide back to a punchy faster beat for ‘Froz’, creating a nice contrast to the filter swept low harmonies and light high accents that create a sense of a cold, lunar freeze.
      ‘Drome’ takes us back to the outer space disco, before ‘Lunabear’ growls over a wonderful rolling bass line. Then the beats drop out for a trip with ‘Voso’, with delayed melodic stabs and though provoking chord changes.
      ‘Lentslide’ and ‘Vacate Fine Nancy’ introduce an almost breakbeat sounding element to the album, still with those perfect chord shifts and atmospheric touches, ending all too soon with the gorgeous off kilter beats of ‘Clutch from a past to State a Present’.
      The whole work has a cohesive, ambient heart that beats gently throughout each track. Melodies and rhythms stack against each other, before melting through the synapses and if that isn’t the definition of acid, ambient, braindance music then I’ll eat my space helmet. A wonderful package that makes you feel good twice; Once for the aural pleasure and second because it’s all for a good cause. This album has put Paranerd, Paul Goguen and his many aliases on my radar and I look forward to listening to ‘Silktrops’ many times, while I hunt down previous releases and look forward to more to come.
