On 12th October Blank Dogs release their new album entitled Land and Fixed. Blank Dogs have been going since 2007 enveloping their disco sound in lo-fi fuzz and smothering the vocals in a distant sounding reverb. Mike Sniper, the project’s leader, remained anonymous for much of the early period giving his clouded vocal stylings an air of mystery and abstruseness. It now turns out that this prolific fellow is also the founder of the uber-cool label Captured Tracks who have on their roster Wild Nothing, Beach Fossils, Veronica Falls and a myriad of shit-hot artists. Listen to Blank Dogs’ taster Northern Islands below:
