about

Bunnies On Fire, the third Experimental Bunnies collection, gathers a large crew of talented collaborators into the net for a sonic pilgrimage that rolls inexorably forward like hot lava flowing from a volcanic mountaintop to the icy sea. Along the way, the sound touches on piercing baby cries, expansive raga preludes, deep noise-flecked dub, cloudy computer music, gentle bulldozer drones, playful jazzy scat-singing, pastoral xylophone architecture, chaotic jazz-rock, languid lakeside trumpet picnics, and a closing live basement improvisation that shows four minds poised in the moment of creation. Featured guest players joining J Neo Marvin and Davis Jones include: Junko Suzuki Parsons of Cyclub (trumpet); Nik Phelps of the Sprocket Ensemble (trumpet); Mark Zanandrea of the Cat Heads and X-tal (sitar); Glenn Stevens of the Content Providers (guitar) along with his wife Gulya Oblokulova (keyboards) and their baby daughter Gwen (diva vocals); and multi-instrumentalist veteran Bunny collaborators Steve Abbate and Heiko Bachmann. The Bunnies divert from their usual instrumental setup on “Echo Bop”, which features Steve, Davis, and Neo on spontaneous jazz vocalizations! The xylophone-led acoustic track, “How To Build A House”, was sampled in a track on the essential Rob K masterwork, THE PURGATORY HOME COMPANION. The abstract sound worlds the Experimental Bunnies build grow richer, subtler, and more poignant than ever with each new album, and this one is the most mindblowing dispatch yet from their underground psychedelic warren.

about

The Experimental Bunnies San Francisco, California

The Experimental Bunnies are more a network than a band. Many creative players of instruments have dropped by, donned the ears, and added their own potent improvisational voices to the mix, which we subsequently edit and polish into delicious psychedelic compositions. Anything can happen, and an Experimental Bunnies song can go anywhere. We're only lost when we stop exploring. ... more
