Anyone who has ever tried to record sound usually runs into the same set of problems- buzzing from appliances, sound from adjoining rooms… The sound of dogs barking.
And the latter situation is what inspired Israel-based producer Monoq to create the absolutely bonkers ‘Recordog’.
“His barking sounds were all over my recordings. I couldn’t make music no more so i turned him into a song. I believe and hope things will get better, for now let’s all stay safe.”
Lo-fi strings and electronic elements build up the minimalist soundscape, with brilliant backing vocals from the dog. Monoq’s understated vocals are a perfect vehicle for the matter-of-fact narrative, and the whole thing is just hugely fun.
Hats of to Monoq and the titular furry friend.
