Bring Me the Head Of Kyle Bobby Dunn

Kyle Bobby Dunn has been building toward due recognition for a while now. The rural Ontario-via-Brooklyn composer’s capacity to transmit beauty from the most transient points of tonal elegance has always elbowed itself a spot within SCQ’s listening habits but, this year, his efforts became unavoidable. Alongside November’s bare and lovely In Miserum Stercus, Bring Me the Head Of Kyle Bobby Dunn finds the minimalist achieving some of his finest work yet.

In all likelihood, we’ve acclimatized to his trajectory a hell of a lot more than Dunn’s bent any rules to our favour. But it's a dynamic that's paying off for both parties. After all, this is music to internalize and learn from; it wouldn’t make any sense for Dunn to cater his gorgeous ambience toward any tangible scene when he occupies such a minimalist throne. Blessed and cursed are those who let this record of pure sadness soundtrack their lives this year.
