The mesmerizing, starlit songs of Michigan’s Damned Dogs are built from synthesizers, woodwinds, tape manipulations, and vocals. Band members, Amber Fellows and Fred Thomas, blur and recombine these elements in the reflection of a dreamer’s narrative—the weightlessness of sleep, the menace of nightmare—combining a deep respect for melody with a wordless, descriptive spirit. Fellows and Thomas follow the rich history of psychically-connected duos, channeling the cobwebbed harmonies of Windy and Carl, the underwater haze of Boards of Canada, and the visionary explorations of Areski and Brigitte Fontaine.
