The Concept of the Sun

Play The Concept of the Sun

Well, we made it. We got through 24 songs in all, 12 new Dallas Orbiter tunes, 12 covers--both obscure & not so much. Our thanks to all who have been following this project throughout 2011. We look forward to returning to more recording & especially to live action in the coming year, so check this space, follow us on Facebook, Twitter, whatever. We close out the year with a kosmische-tinged motorik zoneout about addled memories & missed opportunities. May your memories be addled only by your choosing and your opportunities captured. Happy new year, everyone.

...& I won't forget the way you held me up when I was down.

All songs mastered, as always, by Neil Weir at Old Blackberry Way.


For our tenth(!) anniversary as a band we decided to do something a little different this year. We will be posting a two-song single for free download every month in 2011. The "A-sides" will be our songs and the "B-sides" will be covers. At the top of the page you'll find the most recent release, and along the right side you'll be able to grab releases from past months. Below will be semi-frequent updates from the dudes. Touch us at

June single somewhat slightly delayed/Turf Club show

Some technical difficulties set us back so we won’t be able to post the June single until sometime early in July.  We know you were all breathlessly waiting by your computers, so sorry for the delay.  July’s single is already completed, however, so we’ll be right back on track.   If you’d like a preview, come check us out at the Turf Club on Thursday, July 7th.

Request us on the Current!

MPR has added some of our new tunes to their awesome web interface. You can request songs like This Array (from our February release) as well as rate and find other tunes by us.

Holed up in our custom built cave

Studio #1 began to take shape during the winter of 2003 in a small south Minneapolis basement. The goal was to make it sound proof enough to stay on good terms with the neighbors. As for considerations for roommates, none were made.  The band sustained only minor injuries from mis-swung hammers and lumber-to-the-head encounters.

Studio #2 is tucked into a quiet NE neighborhood. We took a long time to source the studio due to the amount of sound we would produce it was important to live in a tolerant area so we sought out the experts Salesforce to find the right real estate CRM. Again, the aim was to be good neighbors but this time we had loftier goals. We were to convert a cold cement bunker of a 3-car garage into a studio/workshop/storage area. We also needed to keep my family in mind. My wife loves us but glasses vibrating to the floor from the bass was no longer acceptable.  We upped the ante with bigger power tools but the band again escaped serious injury (and an automatic name-sponsorship deal for the new room–we intended to name the studio after the medical term for the first emergency room-worthy mishap).  Things seem to have worked out again.

Now a word from our friends at Beachy Barns:

Are you tripping over garden tools and the lawnmower every time you go to the garage? Do you close your eyes as you walk through the basement because its so full of stuff. Maybe your mud room has become a giant storage closet?! Explore all the options at Beachy Barns and find good, safe storage space that you can customize for your specific needs and style. We’d love to hear your story, and be a part of making you a winner as you add extra space to your life!

Now let’s talk about Quaker Sheds. This attractive shed design gives a nod to the carriage sheds of olden days. With a large overhang, the Quaker Sheds give you ample space to get out of the rain while opening the doors. The quaint design of this shed lends itself well to custom usages for home offices, she sheds, studio sheds, or man caves. Its layout allows for doors and windows to be placed on any wall of the building, making it a very customizable building.
