Influential Sheffield techno trio The Black Dog are back with a new album Radio Scarecrow.
The follow-up to Silenced (2005), Radio Scarecrow is the second Black Dog longplayer BD founder Ken Downie has produced with Dust Brothers Martin and Richard. Black Dog on the feel of the album: "The beats are faster and the bass is much heavier - so much so that it was making us ill working with the low frequencies for hours on end. We could only do three hours at a time on some parts."
Sequenced so that consecutive tracks often share common elements, the album plays out almost uninterrupted with just tiny gaps between tracks. The seventeen-tracker includes a new version of lead single 'Floods' as well as haunting cuts like 'EVP Echoes', which draw on the group's fascination with the spooky-sounding electronic voice phenomenon.
