A Kyle Bobby Dunn six-pack? Don't mind if I do. A sextet of intensely tasty, recently revealed treats from the post-classical composer's archives & pre-release work. Together, these new-ish "epic & dronelogical" workouts help frame the mournful beauty & muted fanfares of this year's fine Ways of Meaning (Desire Path), the latest refinement of Dunn's utterly uncommon sound.
"new songs to bore you all to tears hopefully"? Tears may come into it, as the artist's comments on Innisfail (Rivers of my Fathers) & Le Passage de Crétins Oublié suggest; boredom, hardly.
Legends of Paul Jackson
"Another languid theme of legacy for the long lost languages of Paul Jackson, Aron Fredrik, and Bobby Heroin. Recorded at the latest configuration of Bunce Cake."
"Sounds of Banff, Alberta by using a single, very shitty electric guitar. Recorded in 2010."
The Calm Idiots of Yesterday
"Unreleased work, recorded in early 2011 at Bunce Cake Brooklyn."
Innisfail (Rivers of my Fathers)
"Sequenced work for guitar, horns and a whole lotta woe. Composed in the latter days of 2010 and completed one crisp autumn evening at Bunce Cake."
Le Passage de Crétins Oublié
"Fuzzy, unmedicated piece for guitar and an uncontrollable urge for tears."
