Free Music Friday! Dana Buoy - "Call To Be"
MP3: "Call To Be" - http://lefserecords.com/tracks/DanaBuoy-CallToBe.mp3
What started as hopeful love notes left on an answering machine in Oregon were later crafted into an album in a bungalow near a jungle lagoon in Thailand. Armed with nothing more than a laptop, an MPC1000, and the enchantment of the paradise found there, the songs began to take shape, mimicking the tropic forms that surrounded them.
The result is Summer Bodies, the culmination of over a year of songwriting and traveling. A dream pop record combining elements of Afro beats, synth pop, and what Buoy refers to as "Tropicore". The songs connect the dots between Paul Simon and Drake, providing a sonic spaceship ride from the beach party to the after party.
Dana Buoy has spent the better part of the last decade as the percussionist for Akron/Family. Summer Bodies is due out via Lefse Records in May 2012.
