DryLake My favourite tracks are Salt Circle and Fossil Blossom. The tracks and the cover art bring back memories of the funeral I ones gave an unknown "dust bunny", as well as poetry about death, decay and beauty. Favorite track: Salt Circle.

about

Dust Bunny was inspired by a long Winter and historic blizzard that buried the land as well as moods. How else to keep spirits up than by making music?

A melancholic vibe winds through the album but never extinguishes the hope that Spring will one day return. Bells, chimes, xylophones, and a collection of rusty toys add warm textures over chilly synths and cold mechanical beats. Darkness and light cycle like the seasons in these songs, ending with a lullaby and a gentle thaw. Crickets chirp, petals bloom, and hibernating creatures shake off the blanket of snow for another year.

Review Quotes:

"If we had to sum up this album in a single word, that word would be magical."
- Babysue

"More melancholy means more maturity...it's lent his music a new and engaging depth."
- A Closer Listen

"A rare treat and a great addition to a back catalog chock-full of equally whimsical records."
- Boston Hassle
