One of a reviewer’s favourite dreams – and, in equal measure, worst nightmares – is to occasionally stumble across a band who are difficult, if not downright impossible, to categorize.
Such an outfit are Parisien quartet Dot Legacy, and this eclectic self-titled debut, which veers between post-rock synchopation, stoner, ambient noise, psychedelia and even jazz, world music and hip hop to produce an album that inherits an avant-garde musical orbit lying somewhere between Russian Circles, Sleep, Pink Floyd, Frank Zappa and Kyuss.
It’s original. It’s innovative. It’s brave and daring. It’s challenging. It’s defiant. It’s entrancing. It’s beautiful.
