Editorial Reviews

Coyote, Kayo Dot's fourth studio album, is a single, narrative-driven, long-form composition written with story and text provided by a close, terminally-ill friend of the band, Yuko Sueta, in the final stage of her life. Coyote was engineered by Randall Dunn (Sunn 0)), Earth, Six Organs of Admittance) in Seattle, Washington, forging a new genre of ''goth fusion'' which combines elements of early Cure, Faith And The Muse, and Bauhaus with Herbie Hancock's psychedelic album, Sextant, and Scott Walker's recent album, The Drift. The lyrics and story were constructed with deliberate melodrama to pay homage as well to the intended gothic vibe, expressing the protagonist's loneliness and longing to be in a better place, and her journey through her own personal looking-glass through a hallucinatory world of fear and wonder.

"Help me... I'm disappearing!" Toby Driver wails agonizingly; they're the first lyrics from the first song, Calonyction Girl, on the album Coyote, Kayo Dot's fourth studio work overall. I find it utterly impossible that any album could open with four more apropos words, delivered in a more striking way. In a sense, they encapsulate the entire album; Coyote feels like the soundtrack to that moment between sleep and awake when you're drifting off into the symbolic abyss of the unconsciousness, but still have a faint recognition of what's happening. When one discovers that the album was inspired by Driver's good friend, the photographer Yuko Sueta, when she was terminally ill with breast cancer, the words, emotions, and tones of drifting between sleep and awake take on an even greater depth and dimension of slipping between life and death--like Ivan Ilyich in Tolstoy's short-story masterpiece.

For those who haven't heard (or heard of) Kayo Dot, they're essentially a... well, actually, capturing that essence of what they are has seemingly alluded every critic (whom I've read) who has tried to pin them down. Calling them a progressive, avant-garde, experimental rock/modern classical band is probably as close as you can get, and if such an umbrella definition seems much to wide to be of much use, it probably is, but I'm not sure how to do better. The band was formed by ex-Maudlin of the Well member Toby Driver and it seems to be largely his brainchild. Driver's connections to the metal world is probably what got Kayo Dot initially labeled as a "metal band", even though they rarely fit the description (even on Choirs of the Eye, which had the most "metal" moments of any of their albums).

I was present at the first concert Kayo Dot ever played this album at 'The Stone' in New York. We obviously didn't know what to expect as no one had ever heard it before, but it was far and away one of the most thrilling shows I've ever been to. They played with confidence, power and precision. There was a strange aura that felt almost tangible throughout the performance, especially when the horn driven groove sections made their way into the space. Toby Driver has a way of writing and arranging that seems to be unique from any other musician/composer I've heard and this album in particular is a testament to their tremendous strength and force for creativity as musicians. I don't want to say more than that as it's hard to find words to describe the special quality to this music. (They're all very nice as well). Support them in their endeavors! They deserve it!
