My Brutal Life by The Black Dog

Seeking beauty in the human condition through a Brutalist lens

The Sheffield Ambient/Techno maestros maintain their high standards with another effective, deeply conceptual album (recently coinciding with an exhibition of the same name). Seeking beauty in the human condition through a Brutalist lens by peel[ing] away superficial layers to expose the underlying emotional strata of the human aspect, The Black Dog have produced a powerful passage of musical prose that proves provocative and poignant.

Although the exhibition (of photographs, paintings, poetry and more) has passed, a catalogue is available to buy.
