The Black Dog: Radio Scarecrow (Soma) The latest incarnation of Black Dog continues the legacy of post-techno electronica synonymous with Warp's famous but now defunct series of artificial intelligence recordings pioneered by the likes of Aphex Twin, B12, Autechre and the original line up of Black Dog that included Ed and Andy of Plaid. Without being too brutal, the music is very well produced but stuck in the aforementioned genre of lush padded views, soft focused beats and highly melodic keyboard refrains that have remained popular to this day. I can see why listeners are seduced by the percussive ticks, warm textures and post-club 'vibes' of some of these 3am offerings. Working more as a collection rather than a series of individual tracks, some of the more beat-y tunes could be offered up on an early morning come down set. Not one for me but I can see some junior raver getting into this.
