The third album by the Bully Blinders is here and we’d love to tell you about how it came about and what it means to us.
We’ve never been ones for pigeonholing others, much less being pigeon-holed ourselves. Like so many of us, our interests are varied and our taste as evolutionary as life. For some reason, it’s been typical practice to corner off musical styles and put a roll of police tape around it to warn others of the accepted do’s and dont’s, the expected cast of characters, and the associated prescribed philosophies. While this album wasn’t intended to specifically rebel against these social norms, what we ended up with in a most natural development is a collection of emotional expression without the sometime burden of message by way of the vernacular.
Whether it’s driving, studying, staring into a fire, running errands, procreating, falling asleep, or just watching your proteins folding, these songs are available to you to be used as atmospheric backdrop and emotional steerage. While we didn’t set out to make an instrumental album, what we found was the development of a sound that wasn’t asking for lyrics. Instead, we were confronted by a score that feels somehow new, both relaxing and exciting at the same time… Making this music was such a great creative experience for us and we are very eager to share these songs with you.
Maybe you’ll find melodies and words floating around in these songs. We’d love to hear it if you do.
Listen and Enjoy!
From us with lots of LOVE,
released December 21, 2012
