I do need some help on the weekend of July 7-9, if any of my kind fans have a car and would be up for an adventure, driving me to these concerts, I will pay you!  I also need to rent some sound equipment for July 8/9.

and, indeed, you heard that right, Dufus is getting back together for a one time show September 23 at Baker Falls with Jeffrey Lewis, Nathan Dufour and Toby Goodshank on the bill.   We will most certainly have special guests coming up throughout the show!

New Album and European Tour!

Not Ants!! Within this 10 song LP you’ll find songs about ants (actually not ants), peaceful protest, keeping things real, letting go the child self, sailing in a cave (a dream song Regina Spektor sang), perfectly sculpted hairdos in the age of societal collapse, bringing the masses into a positive future, gun issues, dissassembling reality and the pitfalls involved, and letting go of all meaning. There are many more words than that within the songs, and tons of notes, mostly sung.

The album is structured off of live looping with voice and occasional instruments coupled with a new, less affected way of singing as suggested by my friend and collegue Jeffrey Lewis. I hope you’ll take the time to listen then buy the album!

This year I’ve put out 4 official releases plus some under pseudonyms… clearing out my vaults.  Next month there’ll be a new DUFUS LIVE ALBUM!

With all these new albums I thought it time to tour Europe!

Weirdly Weathered Animated Video

Hello you sweet, wonderful humans!

I’m in a very good mood today because our new VIDEO is done and getting spun all across the world!  So exciting. I want to thank you all for your support.  This has been a few months in the making. Lots of the costs were covered by you and your support. I’ve been working with a very special artist named Kelly McDermott. Kelly reached out to me earlier last year.  She had discovered my music online and offered to make a video. We became good friends over time, and I decided to hire her to make a video because I love her aesthetic! It turned out to be a very collaborative process.  I thought I’d give you a little peek into how we did it!

So, first we both listened to it and tried to think of what imagery the music and lyrics evoked for us both.  I sent my thoughts with timings to her then she responded to that with ideas she had… then I sent it back again with more ideas and clearer timings, and she started making her puppets and scenes.  Everything was made from scratch for this particular video, so you can imagine, Kelly put in a ton of hours!  She would send me clips and I’d say “I love it!” usually.  Occasionally I’d offer an opinion here or there.  She sent me the imagery in batches and long clips then I placed them all in with the music and started fiddling.  The way I work on video is to do a lot of fiddling.  haha. Did you notice an historic musical icon who gets featured throughout the video?

I’d like to take this moment to thank Kelly publicly for her tireless hard work on this project.  I’m super excited to be moving forward with this collaboration into the next phase!  Kelly and I are working on another video for the album release in March with Needlejuice Records.  That’s going to rule, I’m sure of it.  Kelly has already sent me a bunch of sketches and plans…. crazy to think she and I haven’t even met in person yet.  Her partner Case Federal is a great musician. I want to say a special thanks to Case, Carly Clanton and Tyler Regan for doing the dancing in the desert puppetry.

I was reminded by friend Diane Cluck that when we were living in Ithaca together 15 years ago I had mentioned that I wanted to get into animation and video.  Here I am 15 years later doing something I never really thought I could do. Now I’m moving on to bigger and better things even! All of this is a move toward making a kick ass film, Moon Shaped Head.  Sooner or later we will score some more funding and move forward.

Ok, enough words!  More music.

much love,

Seth
