Kayo Dot are a splinter faction formed after the breakup of maudlin of the Well. Whereas their predecessor band made pretentious claims of using lucid dreaming to acquire music composed by ghosts in the astral plane, Kayo Dot disavowed this compositional method, and indeed the compositions do seem to be a bit more cohesive than on Bath/Leaving Your Body Map. However, their mixture of quiet and loud parts - the standard post-rock formula, really - doesn't quite work for me, mainly because I just can't bring myself to like the quiet parts, which seem rather bland and uninteresting. Still, it seems to work for some, so it might be worth giving a try - just don't feel bad if it turns out they're not to your tastes, because you're not alone.

Umur, You should start with Maudlin's Part the Second, it is more accessible than any other Toby Driver project. Maudlin is an amazing band. Kayo Dot is more dissonant and experimental but with some effort it become so rewarding. Enjoy

I haven´t been able to enjoy neither Maudlin nor Kayo Dot yet either. I´m still trying though.
