"The Dog is Black," a collaboration between UNKLE mastermind James Lavelle and the Duke Spirit singer Liela Moss, starts off sounding like an exciting hybrid of Björk and Led Zeppelin in cosmic "Kashmir" mode but gradually changes course, ending on a more mellow and atmospheric tangent. The track is featured on UNKLE's forthcoming digital-only EP Only the Lonely, which will hit digital retailers on April 5th, but you can stream it here now.
