Boomkat Product Review:
If you're ever feeling like music is just getting too boring or formulaic these days, Cologne's Sonig imprint is probably one of the first places you should be trawling for intriguing sounds. Dogr is a virtuoso conceptual artist working out of New York, and for 'In Korean Wilds And Villages' he's reeled in Andi Toma of Mouse On Mars to provide analog accompaniment to his intimate and startlingly original compositions, blurring distinctions between electronics and instrumental expertise as a backing for his articulate and eloquent vocals, sounding at times uncannily alike Jhonn Balance of Coil. His lyrics are often personally impenetrable and abstracted, making for an even more involving listen, and suitably matched by the experimental curiosity of his and Toma's musical ideas. Between them they traverse vast musical landscapes, from moments of glorious Beach Boys style vocal harmonics on '(Han River) Heaven And Work' to subtly distressed acoustic guitar soul on 'Fiks It Up' or Coil/Current 93 arcane oddness on 'The Man Transform'd'. Dogr has craftily paralleled the mystery and otherworldliness of Korea with this album and we urge any sonic beatniks to invest some tripping time in his beautifully realised and singular world.
