Doctor Butcher V & Music To Dream By Volume II – Now Available on Bandcamp!

It’s true! Both albums are now available on Bandcamp for free!

I’m pretty happy with both of them. Doctor Butcher V explores some old themes and expands on others. In a sense it was a bit of a tribute to the previous albums.

Work on Doctor Butcher VI has not begun yet, but will be a bit of a departure from the first five albums insofar as it will heavily feature the bass guitar to compliment that classic Doctor Butcher samples. I’ve got a few samples in mind. I’m excited. I’m unsure of what the story or theme to the album will be quite yet, but I’m sure it will develop organically as the others have done.

Music To Dream By Volume II however is a bit of a departure from the first. I pulled back on the dialogue samples rather heavily, played around with some higher tempo drums, and let the songs last a little longer. Unlike Doctor Butcher which is a story, MTDB is a very moody and emotional project and I allowed myself to indulge in some longer track times. Most are still pretty short. It also includes a goofy little downsampled and jumpy version of the Talking Heads classic ‘This Must Be The Place (Naive Melody)’

Anyway, blah blah blah! Go download the new albums!

Doctor Butcher V Update (5/15/17)

Okay, it’s been a while since I updated this, so here is the latest!

Progress has been slow since my return from Utah, but I am getting back into the swing of regular production. I cut a few tracks from DBV and remade three of them. One may be cut or edited, I’m still in the process of deciding what’s exactly to do with it. I also have nearly completed the introductory song. I will give it a few tweaks before the final release of the album, to be certain. Minor stuff. It’s a fun intro.

Currently DBV is weighing in at a healthy 18 minutes.

Music To Dream By Vol III has made some progress, but I’m not entirely satisfied with its new additions, but I am more interested in finalizing DBV before I turn my ears back to MTDB.

New samples include Alfred Hitchcock, Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer, Goblin, more Fabio Frizzi, more Hammer, more Starcrash, some Dungeonmaster, and I believe some XTRO has returned as well (bearing powers of black magic from deep space)!!

I fixed the intro and gave two of the new songs videos. Enjoy!

New Music Videos (Doctor Butcher V)

Wave one of ‘Doctor Butcher V’ has landed on YouTube!


In other news DB I & II tapes are almost finished recording.

My trusty Nakamichi LX-5 is recording tape 75/100 as I write this. As soon as I hit 90/100 or so I will order the next batch of tapes for DB III & IV, which may wind up being a limited run of 50 instead of 100. It depends on how quickly I finish ‘Music To Dream By’ Vol II & maybe even III. I’d like to get those released. Relatively soon. Before summer, for a certainty. I may also release some older stuff under the title of ‘Hound Music’
