Damu The Fudgemunk “Vignettes” (REDEF Records)


via Redefinition: According to Merriam-Webster, “Vignettes” means ‘a short descriptive literary sketch/brief incident or scene (as in a play or movie).’

The album is aptly titled – 15 musical scenes, each with their own unique settings, are stitched harmoniously together to provide a universal message to an audience who must use the gift of their own interpretation. At just over 2 hours long, the listener is given an unfiltered front row performance into the heart, mind, and soul of the the artist.

This latest effort from Damu the Fudgemunk is of typical and unorthodox proportions. Musically, it’s what you should expect from the man who brought you the How it Should Sound franchise, Supply for Demand, and The Spur Momento Trailer. Intellectually, it’s his most vulnerable piece of work to date. Hoping to challenge and inspire the listener through a musical narrative, it’s content is open ended. Any resulting opinion that provokes thinking is encouraged given the message in “Vignettes”. Even the art direction is intentionally abstract and undefined to welcome the attention of all people.

The album is completely instrumental except for “Openings”, the lone vocal track which features Raw Poetic. With a “quality over quantity” slogan, Redefinition Records adds “Vignettes” to its legacy and marks their first 3LP vinyl release which is exclusively being sold through Redefinition. While double CDs (in Mini LP style packaging with printed inner sleeves) and double cassettes (in a unique side by side case instead of the standard double cassette box) are available everywhere. Though the word “vignette” may refer to something brief, Damu the Fudgemunk‘s new album “Vignettes” has a long future ahead for years to come.

“Vignettes is a true example of ‘art imitating life.’ All the commentary/music is a collection of my personal experiences and those reflections applied to music to document an honest depiction of my current perspective on life and the world we share.” -Damu The Fudgemunk
