First Dog to Visit the Center of the Earth
“Prehistoric”

RIYL: Walking With Dinosaurs. Think methods of observing a hyper-hypothetical hyper-past through hyper-modern technology (that exists in the hyper-future). This one comes from California’s First Dog to Visit the Center of the Earth, who has a new CD out called Corecore, a record overflowing with dub-dabbling, break-referencing beats that sound like they were designed by alien archeologists. “Prehistoric” trudges forth with the gravity of a Stegosaurus despite the stuttering, skittering bass hits. Various melodies fill out the top end, clambering over one another to get a hold on the song’s thesis, all of it presented through a dazzling array of synth and computer-manipulated/-generated whoozies. Love them whoozies.

The video was created by FDVCE über-homie Ryan Watson and features a masked dude (perhaps masking himself from the documentarian character represented by the camera, who is obviously on serious hallucinogens) desperately digging in the forest for sacred fossils or something. He seems pretty lost actually. I identify with him. And I love him. I dunno, the video looks great though, appropriately trippy and harping on that psychedelia vis-à-vis the techno-nature double helix thing for which First Dog has such a knack.

Corecore is up for purchase and subsequent aural-gobbling at Debacle Records.
