Earliest Forms of Magic, the first Dogon Lock release, was one I had to dig for; it proved to be a real stunner once I finally heard it, leaving most other present day tape manipulators in the dust. (Unfortunately, I only managed to procure two more additional copies of that for this site—KUG to the rescue—so the rest of you will have to match my resourcefulness.) For the follow up, the means of production seem to have changed a great deal. The mood remains the same, but we’re treated to a much more electronics heavy VHS psycho-thriller suite of doom and submission. Pounding rhythms and emerging dissonance suggest an image of being dragged through a forest by two imposing figures at each arm, with a silent, harsh tribunal bringing up the rear. Deposited at the riverbed and forced to kneel, someone starts pestling away at unknown botanicals collected nearby, mixing it with the fetid river water. For a moment, an unexpected serenity arises from the sounds accompanying the dark, rippling reflection at the water’s edge. Someone says “drink,” and down we go. A fine suite of stomach-churning synth and pulse work, but there’s maybe a sample near the end I could have done without, If I’m being truthful—that’s just me. Thrilled to have more Dogon Lock in my house, but I hope this is only one of many assorted flavors he’s got in store, as I’m still holding out for more of that Earliest Forms of Magic magic.
