It should be no secret that Kyle Bobby Dunn has been masterfully creating slowpaced, deeply emotional, minimalist music for a number of years. And with highly regarded albums for labels such as Low Point, Kining Disk, Desire Path, and Ghostly, he seems to be confident in his craft and has carved out a unique musical signature. His latest long player, In Miserum Stercus, shows Dunn’s slow, rather drab and at times just completely sad sound moving even slower and into a near diminishing state. Some suites were recorded originally for the Bring Me the Head of Kyle Bobby Dunn album released earlier in 2012, at a uniquely quiet rural Canadian studio and others at the Bunce Cake NYC space. Tracks like Buncington Revisited and Lake Wapta Rise showcase some of his darkest, most haunting works to date. Brooding drones and minor notes constructed from guitar recordings dissolve into blackness. Whereas tracks like In Praise Of Tears and Meadowfuck revel in the stasis of hope and sadness. Accentuated treble gleams but the beauty is fleeting as something sinister lurks beneath. In Kyle’s own words, the album “definitely consists of the most somber and depressing music I’ve ever made”.
This is his first release for Komino Records and is pressed in a limited edition of 500 copies.
