Kansas musician Jim Dandy, aka Cloud Dog, is currently trying to raise money via Kickstarter to fund a vinyl pressing of his third full-length release, Realms, which he says will be his most experimental album yet. I learned of Cloud Dog through our friends at Whatever Forever, who are going to be putting out a cassette with him in the future. Dandy writes:
I have been working long hours into countless nights...listening closely and manipulating tones, rhythms, and vocals ever so slightly. I am hoping to achieve what I feel is audio-imagery; music that constructs places and evokes images all uniquely created by the listener. This is music that can visually take you to another "realm" through swells of soundscaping.Check out "Drift", a track from Realms below, and be sure to donate to the Kickstarter if you can - there are only 4 days left! There are some sweet contributor rewards available, including hand screen-printed t-shirts, posters, and DVDs.
