Boomkat Product Review:
Brooklyn's enigmatic Blank Dogs crack open another jangling can of fizzy, beleaguered pop music. Previous Blank Dogs releases (and there have been many over a relatively short period of time) have immersed listeners in a distorted electronic landscape held together by chugging new wave guitars and rasping vocals buried deeply within. Under And Under brings a heightened sense of coherence to Blank Dogs' music, as exemplified by soaring pop gems like 'Night Night' and 'Open Shut'. Where previously it's been hard to tell whether Blank Dogs has been worthy of the sort of hype and blog attention he's accumulated, this time around the evidence is far more readily available. Though still entrenched in lo-fi sensibilities there's no suppressing a good hook: 'You're Out Of TIme' is positively addictive in its towering onslaught of guitars and crummy drum machines - only those grotty, excessively quiet vocals cause any sort of nagging sticking point. What with Crystal Stilts, Vivian Girls and countless others (usually on this record label), 2009 is (un)clearly the year of the unintelligible vocal, and while it does give you the sneaking suspicion that these bands are just trying to cover up for diabolically bad lyrics let's give Blank Dogs and co. the benefit of the doubt and enjoy those blissfully filthy melodies.
