Music Submission, Kendra & the Bunnies

Artist or Band Name: 
Kendra & the Bunnies

Kendra Muecke is a singer/songwriter, guitarist, poet, healer, and published author performing under the name “Kendra & the Bunnies”. Based in Los Angeles and from Houston, Texas, her mission is to bring about peaceful gathering of community through song, voice, and action. Live performance plays a huge role in unbridling her message to be understood by listeners. Kendra combines music, spoken word, theatrical staging, and healing ritual to transport the audience into a mystical-surrender of now.

Kendra’s sound combines the musical notes of singing, spoken word, guitar (electric and acoustic), percussion, medicine drum, and electronic samples. Kendra has self-titled her genre “Native Americana’ that chants from the valley of Folk and Rock”. This brings the listener into thinking about where the roots of folk-americana were founded. There is a lot of storytelling prevalent in the creation and continuation of our country, the key is recognizing what stories we as a society cling to and why.

Our full length album Tell Your Friends You Love Them And Why is out now, and we write you with unfettered anticipation.  This is our tenth year as a band and we are very proud to be making music in the Bay Area for the whole of that timeframe.  We do hope you check out this new music and I can send you over the full album (.wav files or CD) and promo materials for the album.  Just say the word.  The two singles below are downloadable .WAV files:

“There is a time, its rolling by, so tell your friends you love them and why…”

So begins the first track, Twin Geeks, on this long play. Do we say it enough? We tell our parents and siblings we love them. But do we tell our friends and explain why? If not, let’s change that.

After a decade of playing, this is our fifth album. Our cornerstone style - traditional instruments used in non-traditional ways - and comfortability with each other is evident in our live set and made concrete in our recordings. I guess the longevity of over a decade playing with the tight group of nearly the same musicians explains that some, also.

  The lyrics in this album touch on friendship, an aging band, fatherhood, and the divisiveness that permeates our culture, and creates bridges to help help mend some of these aberrations in our own lives and through the reach of music.
  Tell Your Friends You Love Them And Why was recorded at Owl Sight Recorders in Oakland, CA. Alex Laipenieks engineered and mixed the album to analog tape. Carl Saff mastered the album at Saff Mastering in Chicago, IL.

I hope to hear from you.

Heart,

What does the name ‘No Serial Killer’ signify? 

It refers to the fact that as a 46 year old, I am happy to have not turned into a serial killer. By 2019 standards, I’m doing pretty well. If any of our listeners is a serial killer, you’re not welcome to be one of our fans. We only want ‘no serial killers’ to like ‘No Serial Killer’. Killing people due to one’s own inadequacies we find deeply offensive. Don’t hurt others is the message. 

What does ‘Bass Piano’ mean? 

All of our tracks use piano as the bass guitar in the song. There is no bass guitar in any song. 'Yes I do' has no piano at all though. 

Influences? 

Sigue Sigue Sputnik. Rock and roll of all eras. Any music with a good vibe. We take influences from music, TV, movies, video games, life in general etc. 

Why is the group faceless? 

This is a one-off project so our personalities are irrelevant. I wanted to make a great album and we've achieved that goal. The album is entitled ‘The Greatest Music Album In Recorded Human History’. It’s our way of saying we think the music is quite good. :) 13 tracks, all classics in their own right. How many albums do you know of where there are absolutely no filler tracks? Every song is fantastic! 

When will the album be released? 

May 2019. 

Who are you? 

I am AKM. I wrote all of the songs, played the bass piano on all tracks and offered vocal direction to the singers. I have used a variety of professional singers and session musicians on the album. I’m British. The vocalists and session musicians are American. 

How do I contact you?

Late King Daisy
Email Address: 
Late King Daisy is the new project from Canadian A. Dyjecinski (ex Beggars Banquet bands Dracula Legs & Magic & Fur). In the years since his last release “The Valley of Yesiree” (2016 Rough Trade / Kartel MG), Dyjecinski has been focused on creating and stockpiling songs while developing his craft. In a sense, over time, the songs have come to take on an identity of their own, Dyjecinski explains. “I feel it deserves it’s own identity moving forward. The name feels like ‘me’ rather than a character that I inhabit, yet allows for an important separation and development."

The song is about needing the strength of a superhero to overcome adversity in life.  The "Hipppopotaman" has that very strength.  In my finer moments, I am him.
