For those who aren't familiar with Kayo Dot or Maudlin of the Well, both bands feature compositional music that is difficult to classify. Maudlin of the Well was avant-garde metal/gothic rock band with horns, strings, keyboards and extreme dynamics. Before the release of Choirs of the Eye, Driver changed the band name to Kayo Dot due to a substantial change in style. Kayo Dot is even less describable and their musical style morphs with each release. To hear the catalog of music from Kayo Dot and Maudlin of the Well, go to
