Kayo Dot - Stained Glass (2010)

Avant-garde post-jazz metal experimentalists Kayo Dot have released their latest EP: a single 20-minute ambient track. It is, as described by the band themselves, "a long, floating, vibraphone-centric distortion cloud representing (musically) a Luciferian journey across colorful windows from left to right in a darkened cathedral." It is a spacey and atmospheric piece that reminds of me of The Pavilion of Dreams by Harold Budd more than anything. Both soothing and hypnotic.

  4. I understand Toby's desire to be compensated for his (incredible) art, but do understand man, I would have never found out about Kayo Dot in the first place if it weren't sites like these!
