5 stars Kayo Dot steps forth from the mist in which he is saturated. Kayo Dot strides forward as the shadows shift around him. He breathes the morning air and the limitless potential captive inside its rush. He meanders throughout a rocky waste, dancing, weaving fabric of his thoughts through evenings and pre-dawns. Wherever he goes, the mist writhes about him, and the fabric trails behind. The mist sometimes envelopes the fabric as they are whipped by wind, and they flow as one energy behind Kayo Dot. Kayo Dot is ready to do something that he hasn't done in 2 years. He performs his ritual then begins. He mixes the mist and tapestry and begins making emotions and characters out of it. The characters are shades against a craggy landscape. He makes emotions heavy and profound, swinging them around himself until in a blinding flash, Kayo Dot's job is finished. An etheric vinyl record that was produced by the flash now sits on a small, ornate stone table.

Toby Driver hears that Kayo Dot has come awake again, and he travels to the rocky waste in search of what will come to be known as Blue Lambency Downward. After three nights in the rocky waste, Toby Driver is starting to tire, but he knows that only he can bring this gift to mankind. He presses on until finally, in the afternoon glow, he finds the treasure. Now, he must begin the rocky trek back to town where he will press Blue Lambency Downward and spread it throughout the world. And this time, there are woodwinds.
