Kayo Dot
Hubardo

So this is the second rare record that I got along with the Piglet record. Limited to only 200 copies, this blue variant is one of my most prized records. I'm a huge Kayo Dot fan. I see them every chance I get, have had conversations with them about album concepts, and have had many a drunken and high experiences with their albums. Toby Driver is a genius in my eyes and his work with Maudlin of the Well isn't to be forgotten either. He's been doing this a long time.

Their sound has changed a bit on their last two records to a more gothy post punk with synth overtones and ghostly vocals. This album however is a total tour de force of epic proportions. Starts out with grizzled vocals by former Maudlin pal Jason Byron and then just swirls into this cacophony whirlwind of blast beats and dissonant guitar licks. Very dark and very atmospheric. Brutal way to start an album. Then the horns hit.

The album is split up between three LP's. It's a long album. Lots of movements. Lots of different sounds melting together. The pressing is very good. Great sound quality from the wax. Album comes with a nice lyric sheet.



The majority of the middle of the album is this frantic avant garde jazz chaos with Toby Driver wretching out vocals over horns and blasty off time drums from Keith Abrams. Sets a very sinister mood for the second half of the album to follow.



^One of my favorite songs of all time. Nothing injects energy into me like that song. Pure adrenaline.

After Zlida the album kind of dives underwater for a bit with these dream like melodies. Mia Matsumiya makes an appearance on violin. Toby ups the vocal range a bit. It comes to a close with this...



God damn thing is a masterpiece and I was happy to spend every dollar I did to get it in my possession. I'm still waiting for the re-issue of Choirs of the Eye to get here. When it does, the double feature of playing both epics back to back is something I'll be looking forward to.

I was able to get a good deal on both records if I purchased them together but this still cost me $70. Why did I spend that kind of money on a record that only has five songs? Well, good question. This is the only real "release" that Piglet ever had. They had a CD of other songs a few years back but the EP they released in 2005 is the only real official label release. This coupled with the fact that they aren't on Spotify means that this record is kind of one of the few ways to hear this album without downloading it or streaming on YT. I like that exclusivity. The EP also kicks major f*cking ass.



https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OllEOofj4O8

Some might say they have that generic Mathrock sound but I've listened to a lot of Mathrock in my day and their sound is kind of unique. I'm not even a big fan of Mathrock. I listen to a lot because I'm trying to find another band that sounds like Piglet. The breakdown that starts at around 2:30 in the video above is one of my favorite segments in any song. It reminds me of driving around in high school when I was discovering a very large amount of new music. I'd burn a CD of something that interested me and then drive around for hours listening to music, usually smoking weed as I was doing so, with my friends. We played this CD a lot.

The band members couldn't have been much older than me at the time they made this in 2004-05. That connection was also a big reason I fell in love with the album. The music spoke to me and was written by like minded same aged kids that looked a lot like my friends and I. I hear it now and get very nostalgic.

Lots of reasons to spend $70 on a record. It's limited too so as a collector I get that "ONLY 899 OF THESE EXIST BESIDES MINE HAHA I'M SPECIAL" feeling.

Check out the EP if you like. The full album is below.

I've been too busy to f*cking mod this place correctly lately let alone write a journal entry. I do have enough time though to share a few big purchases I've made recently. The collections I buy are turning into records I actually want. Good thing I have a good job because if my income relied on the money I make from selling records from collections I buy I'd be broke. They're back to supporting my hobby. Anyway, I visited my favorite record store a few times in the last few weeks.
