"This is another "downpayment" in what D. Petri and "Doggy P. Lips" intend as a progressive advance toward an actualization of some sort of 'new experimental-psychedelia', or at least a uniquely new flavor, as imagined by the duo; a sort of existential/mystic, psych/non-psych, transportive, incendiary, visual music/audio that is acheived by specifically designed tonalities, texture sculpturing, rhythms, and compositional structure either of individual pieces or entire recordings.

Serving Two Masters is a humble, Earthy and psychedelic work of distinct immediacy. A brief collection of personal, guitar-centered, psychedelic, dreamy, dramatic, visionary vignettes & quasi-monumental ruminations, the 6 piece stream of Serving Two Masters fills only a handful of seconds less than the full 24 minutes of a 3" cd. Despite the comparitively small duration, it's coherence, complexity, and feeling of closure is of the type provided by many well-realized full length albums. The pronounced guitar-with-effects experimentalism here is of its own searching style, but listeners may find similarities to the approach or moods of the instrumental sides of Main, early Mercury Rev, early 90's Flaming Lips, Ashtray Navigations, James Plotkin, or Christian Fennesz' guitar treatments, as these have all been inspiring or influential for Dog Hallucination. Other possible touchpoints may include Z'ev, Swans, and Brian Eno, but the group has distinctive angles that weave through many halls and levels of influence, not the least of which being their lifetime being raised and living in small towns in the mid-western United States. This recording is of a relatively naked earnestness, not so much seeking the far out as it is seeking relatability of presumably universal thoughts on life and death. Otherworldliness is used here to sensitively point in some important directions, rather than to bind and command, though at times the effect may be a subtle hypnotism. By coupling restrained abstract structural forms and manipulations with carefully chosen melodic elements and tonalities, the aforementioned emotional and/or intellectual "distinct immediacy" is arrived at.

Also of note:

This 3" e.p. is a segue and prelude to a long-labored and delayed full length album slated for release late summer 2013, to be called Mitzi, which deals in similar emotional, textural, and instrumental territories."-Intangible Cat
