This summer, The London-based Dog Unit release their debut ep, “Barking To Gospel”, containing infectious motorik kosmiche (lab coats, as heard on bbc 6music) blissed-out melancholia (the title track), dub-flecked post-punk (an argument) and, on the eponymous Dog Unit, music for evil faced dancing clowns headbanging in a wind tunnel.

“Barking To Gospel” was recorded live just before the UK went into lockdown. as the world ground to a halt, the band sent the raw files to Kieran Hebden (Four Tet), who mixed the ep while self-isolating in upstate New York. then, the ep was mastered at Invada, the studio run by Geoff Barrow (Portishead, Beak>) in Bristol. “Barking To Gospel” is available now on all major streaming platforms and as a strictly limited edition heavyweight 12-inch vinyl. Dog Unit sound like electronic music played by a rock band, or post-rock you can dance to: driving, insistent, intense and, crucially, fun. do call them: purveyors of entrancing drone, tactile texture, slow-mo polyrhythm and skewiff riff’s. don’t call them: Dogwai. praise for Barking To Gospel: “a different type of musical texture, and a very pretty and moving thing it is too” — Steve Lamacq, BBC 6music “a melodic, foot-tapping but reverb-drenched kosmische… the polyfilla that binds the rooms of rising UK post-rock and electronica.” — loud and quiet magazine “an instrumental version of the strokes on acid…after a few too many space beers” — new music saturdays podcast
