High quality vintage ambient glitch electronics from Oval circa 1998, reissued as part of Thrill Jockey’s twenty-fifth birthday. Dok is a typically gorgeous suite of shimmering, wavering soundscapes, constructed from sources so deeply processed as to take on an entirely new character. This reissue is the first time Dok has been made available on vinyl since its initial release.

8/10 Jack Customer review, 25th June 2017
This full-length effort, a collaboration between Oval and sound artist Christophe Charles, marks a shift in Oval's style. Previous releases by the trio were characterised by an often-brittle sound, majorly revolving around a sound not too unlike that of a malfunctioning CD player. This often yielded fascinating results, particularly on "Diskont" and "Wohnton", but after a few albums full of this, the novelty tends to grow thin. However, here the group ventures into seamless structures that often have a tense, nervous feel in addition to their obvious ambience.
