Bring Me the Head of Kyle Bobby Dunn is the most recent album by ambient artist, Kyle Bobby Dunn, and it feels like his most realized excursion into minimalist drone to date.
If I could sum up the 2+ hour work in one word, it would be “patient”. For the past couple months, I have been listening to it every time that I need a moment to take a break and gaze within. The scant amounts of sound in a larger space and Kyle Bobby Dunn’s focus on gradual movement has entrained me to a comfortably slower way of digesting life in an overtly complicated, materialist dystopia.
The record visits subtle melodies, reverberating through the echo chamber of memory and then back into an abyss of silence. Faint ripples of sounds repeat and grow, breathing in and out in zen bliss. Kyle Bobby Dunn is a master at his craft, and it’s magical to be sedated by his greatest work thus far for hours on end.
Low Point is streaming and selling CD’s of Bring Me the Head of Kyle Bobby Dunn on their Bandcamp. Here’s a moment that I particularly enjoyed:
