Kyle Bobby Dunn

If you scan the assorted ‘best of 2011’ lists that outlets covering experimental music have been putting out in the past few weeks than you will no doubt come across this album: Kyle Bobby Dunn, Ways of Meaning (Desire Path Recordings).

Kyle Bobby Dunn - Ways of Meaning (Desire Path Recordings)

The Ontario native’s album earned universal praise when it came out earlier this year and is now getting more love from critics on their year-end lists.

At last check both NPR and Anti-Gravity Bunny found spots for the album–which was put out by Desire Path Recordings, a Buffalo-based record label–on their respected lists. More are sure to follow in the coming weeks.

It seemed fitting then to re-post a mixtape that Mr. Dunn did for the l’Apartament 18 blog. See description and tracklist below:

Kyle Bobby Dunn és un dels artistes emergents més consolidats en el món del drone més ambiental i paisatgístic, i que des del primer dia ha confiat en l’Apartament18 per fer promoció dels seus discos. Ara és ell qui regala a l’A18 en exclusiva una mixtape de les seves influències, fent un recorregut pels clàssics de la música contemporània amb pinzellades indies com Ride o Yo La Tengo. És una mixtape que descobreix les passions de Kyle Bobby Dunn i que ajuda a entendre el magma, la essència, de les seves composicions ambientals.

Kyle Bobby Dunn ha gravat per a prestigiosos segells com Housing, Sedimental, Low Point i el seu últim disc, que vaig ressenyar aquí, l’ha editat Desire Path recordings. També ha col·laborat en segells importantíssims del gènere, com Ghostly International (a la seva imprescindible sèrie SSM:Context).

Thanks to Kyle Bobby Dunn for trusting l’Apartament18 and send this wonderful mixtape. Pleased to having you with me in l’Apartament18!!!!
