Veteran musician and producer Matthew Dear has announced his first album under his own name in six years titled Bunny. It follows 2012’s Beams. He's also shared two tracks off the album, the seven-minute spacey “Bunny’s Dream” and the bass-filled “Echo.” Dear released a lengthy statement about the album in which he explains the album title, why and who he makes music for :
“I make music for people who like my music,” and what he’s been up to the past six years. "Some bands have retired and come back in the amount of time since my last album,” says Dear. “Hell, I've even played a part in making two more humans since Beams. But hey old man, why aren't I rested? Why's your boy so damn tired? Where's the music? Did I finally succumb to the burn out you always warned me of? Well, I DJ'd a lot, put out an Audion album, and submitted a DJ-Kicks mix. Throughout it all, as has been the case since I was 14, I made loads of weirdo music. If it weren't digital, there'd be boxes of tapes and tapes and tapes. See, that's the thing. I'm a tinkerer. I'm a loop obsessed sound hack. The process is what I get out of bed for. So what gives Pops? Where is the music?”
