On “Sick As A Dog” Kostis Chaveles taps into a dreamy, oftentimes powerful mixture of shoegaze and grunge. Vocals adhere to this sound as well as Kostis Chaveles lets his lyrics soar above it all. At times Kostis Chaveles incorporates an unorthodox style reminiscent of Slint’s debut album “Tweez”. By refusing to stick to any one mood, the entire collection is full of twists and turns. Volume is a must for these are songs that deserved to be blasted as loud as is possible.

With a beautifully understated approach is the dreamy opener “Agony”. Starting off small the piece comes into bloom with a satisfying guitar riff leading the way. Cathartic in nature the song grows larger and larger until it reaches a fevered pitch for the finale. Fuzzed out and with a hazy groove is the commanding rhythm of “Exit”. Layer upon layer of sound interact fantastically as the song goes for wilder pastures, as the impressive guitar work feels particularly spirited. Chaos reigns over the virtual madness that defines the boundless energy of “Headache”. Going for a full-on sound Kostis Chaveles pull out all stops as the song goes for broke. Angular in nature is the playful “Now”. Incorporating a great variety of tempos into the mix creating a funhouse effect, the song eventually lets go of this allowing the song a temporary sort of “go for broke” sound before adhering to the structure once more. Ending the collection on a high note is the heavy distortion of “Sick As A Dog”.

Kostis Chaveles creates a true diamond in the rough with the lo-fi, garage rock embracing “Sick As A Dog EP”.

Well, making music is always a therapy for me.
My songs are often affected by what can be “heard” and “seen” (mainly pictured in the mind). Also, I like to keep titles and lyrics abstract. My music has its own thoughts and message, but I don’t want to impose it onto the listener. I want everyone to freely imagine what they will from the music. ... more
