EP Review Dog Unit - Turn Right And Right Again

For those who favour a slither of expansive post-rock on their metaphorical musical toast, there’s plenty here to get excited for.

Dog Unit - Turn Right And Right Again

What is sprechgesang without sprechgesang? ‘The Rule Of Six’, the opening number from London-based quartet Dog Unit’s second EP, takes the jagged post-punk that’s become so ubiquitous over the last few years, makes it a little more sprightly in places, but thanks to the outfit’s instrumental nature doesn’t come complete with a cloying Mark E Smith impression. The rest of ‘Turn Right And Right Again’ is of the vast, sprawling nature that such groups tend to favour; what they eschew vocally, they embrace in length. ‘Absolute Unit’ meanders along with a lost ‘70s FM radio solo before turning full classic rock come the five-minute mark; ‘Pyramid Scheme’ is quieter still before it crashes towards the epic almost halfway through its nine-plus minute length. Lyric-less rock is as Marmite as they come, but for those who favour a slither of expansive post-rock on their metaphorical musical toast, there’s plenty here to get excited for.
