All of my English bull terriers have shown musical preferences. Willy Bumpers was partial to both Rough Trade (“High School Confidential” was a favourite) along with the theme from Dallas. Sponge was more of a Music for Airports sort of dog (I hope to tell that to Eno one day). Schmooze likes to rock out; Rob Zombie seems to resonate well with her. And Squirt? She’s still experimenting, although she’s seems to be gravitating towards Deadmau5. She is a terrier, after all.
This leads me to Michelle Shocked’s Inaudible Women, an album I had previously written about as a “silent” record–an album with no audio at all. Turns out that I was very, very wrong.
I supposed to cover should have tipped me off. Shocked describes the album as “ultrasonic,” featuring tones that only dogs can hear. She explains all at a Noisey.
