about

This album is a joint release with "blue-very label" in Japan. All Japanese customers should purchase the record from
blue-verylabel.bandcamp.com/music



One night I had a dream that Mrs. Muffins and I were dancing with a backdrop of clouds and music. The next day, I stole the music from that dream and wrote "Dream Dancing."

Using "Dream Dancing" as a launching point for a new project, the initial concept for this new record was to create a “dance” album. However, as the weight of the world became impossible to ignore, I realized that I couldn’t just write a bunch of songs about having “fun in the sun.” The words “Dream” and “Dancing” are nearly antonyms, so I began thinking about this album in terms of contrasts. I relayed the information to Mrs. Muffins and devised a plan to make the album artwork have contrasting warm and cool colors. Side A would be the “Dancing” side, and Side B would be the “Dreaming” side.

The result is this album, and we truly hope you enjoy listening to it as much as we enjoyed making it. Being able to work on a project like this during a global pandemic, the death of my father, and recovering from a broken arm, brought me peace. I hope it does the same for you.

Love, Dreams, Memories, and Dance!
-Mr. and Mrs. Muffins-
