NOTE: This album is strictly limited to 2000 copies of heavyweight 180 gr. vinyl and will not appear in any other format. A collection of solo songs by New York City''s prolific Michael Gira, also known for his work with THE ANGELS OF LIGHT and the influential SWANS, besides operating the Young God Records imprint which amongst many other things during recent years has been responsible for introducing Devandra Banhart, Akron/Family and Mi & L''au to the world. Having initially cut his teeth on the outer reaches of the post-No Wave scene of the early 1980s, Gira has over the years honed his craft into something more sophisticated without actually having lost sight of the power, emotional tugs or even, on occasion, the simplicity of his earlier works. On ''Songs for a Dog'', he has collected ten tracks that catch him in his purest form. Mostly built around his guitar and voice in a home studio environment, the songs here both expose the very kernels from which he usually works from and illustrate only too perfectly how they can function without the layers of sound he''s also often fond of exploring. More importantly, these songs capture an artist who seems forever capable of pushing himself into new avenues and whose laurels consistently get cast aside in the process.
