Akron/Family’s Seth Olinsky Has a New Side Project –> CY DUNE

Akron/Family’s Seth Olinsky has been out in Tucson, AZ over the last year, “reading all the Dune books and a bunch of Cormac McCarthy while exploring American primitivist musics through the lens of Dylan, extreme tube saturation, and wild West African guitar musics.” His adventure has morphed into a new project he’s calling Cy Dune and a record is very much in the works; in fact, Seth is mixing it now. Recording the music in both Tucson and Brooklyn, Seth invited musicians Shahzad Ismaily, Andrew Barker, William Parker, Dave Hartley and Chris Powell to join in on the making. Watch the video for “Just Kids” above.

Family Tree Records is putting out a SUPER SUPER limited, hand-etched 7″ of new CY Dune songs, “No Recognize” amd “Yellin’.” Only 20 copies will be created on square, clear vinyl. Purchase HERE.
