Dust Bunnies - Dreamy 3 & Food For the Moon live

"The Vaguest Taste of Fortune"



New Dust Bunnies track is up, bringing the total for this year's album to 17 tracks! There are still a handful of songs that have been started and not finished so this will probably continue to grow into a 2xLP or whatever. This is a song I started writing a long time ago, like 6 or 7 years ago, and at first I wanted to sketch out some additional lyrics and stuff but every time I tried it made the song all about some idealized hippie bs and I realized the whole meaning of the song is a spiritual and anti-material thing so I might as well turn it into a chant that just loops.

"Dreamy 3" New Music from the Dust Bunnies


I am really proud of this song, I was going to call "Forever If You Want Me To" but I like the name "Dreamy 3" better, which is what it's been called as a project file. It's kind of halfway between last year's Dust Bunnies album and this year's. The vocals finally don't sound like crap because I auto-tuned them. I recorded 4 different versions of this file, some with more drums, some as muddy ambient washes of guitar, but this is the best. I really want to emphasize that cool guitar loop that starts up near the beginning, it's my favorite part of the song. It pretty much IS the song.

send me a postcard drop me a line 
i will send kisses over the wire 
i will wait for you 
forever if you want me to 
forever if you want me to 
in the cloud we're streaming 
duplicate the meaning 
teach yourself a fine point 
drink from cups of bats 
i will wait for you 
forever if you want me to 
forever if you want me to


I wrote the song in about an hour or so, playing around with different arrangements of the chord structure first, then writing some lyrics, then rehearsing that as a SONG and seeing what else can be done. That is how the ending came to be, the repeated chorus over 2 chords back to back. That part was inspired by The Velvet Underground's "I Heard Her Call My Name".


"Dreamy 3" is part of a free album I am writing in 2015. Every year since I stopped performing live shows I have been constantly writing and recording. I started using bandcamp last year mainly to archive my original material. There is no concept to any of my albums other than just write and record what I want. A lot of the songs could be considered demos for a 'real' album recorded in a 'real' studio at some fantasy time and place in the future.


Previously this blog hosted the first era of Dust Bunnies music, which was based on covers of copyrighted material, and ended up causing me a deal of trouble, so unfortunately if you are looking for that stuff it has been taking offline and all old links are probably dead.

Dark Souls ft. super early Deerhunter show

I've been playing a lot of Dark Souls and Dark Souls II, and I listen to music when I play. I have wanted to capture some video of this, so I just uploaded a video featuring some super archaic microcasette field recording, of practices, various shows, and hanging out with friends. All this took place in early 2000s and it involved a Kiwis practice, the sounds of me and some friends walking to a venue in East Atlanta called Lenny's, a really early Deerhunter show, and a super secret other band practice that will remain a mystery.

Seven in Heaven

T-rex/FFVIII riff

lyrics
I want you to know 'm an animal
I'm an animal look into my skull
I'm an animal look into my skull
I want you to know I'm an animal

Seven in heaven seven in heaven

I play videogames to keep from going insane
I don't drive a car but I'll go real far
I draw triangles for to put you inside
I draw a magic circle for to keep me alive

Seven in heaven seven in heaven

Pest Control

The 2015 Dust Bunnies album "IN SEARCH OF GRAPHICS" is now almost done! Well maybe not almost done as in finished but it almost has enough material for me to consider it "an album". You can download all Dust Bunnies music for free from Bandcamp, but beware that the albums are constantly shifting, some songs are added and others taken away, new mixes uploaded, demos replaced with 'real' recordings, etc.

This is a song I wrote today waiting for pest control to come. When they appeared I opened a random door and it had two roaches in it. Summer in the fucking southern city.

Anyways it was supposed to be a punk song or a DEVO song or something but I think it sounds more like an industrial or noisey buzzy insect rock than anything. I'm having trouble fitting it on "IN SEARCH OF GRAPHICS" because the album is mostly a DUST BUNNIES version of classic rock or slow wussy shit so this really doesn't go well with the others. I might end up sequencing it in alphabetical order to just eliminate any hierarchy or intentional flow from teh start.
