Dumb Numbers releases box set with David Lynch, David Yow, and The Melvins

It sounds like a weird dream, but no! It’s true! An amazing, weird dream band of artistic luminaries is working with Dumb Numbers, an Australian video maker and musician named Adam Harding, who has been known to collaborate with musical allies such as Lou Barlow (Sebadoh, Dinosaur Jr), Dale Crover (Melvins), Murph (Dinosaur Jr), Kevin Rutmanis (Cows, Melvins), Alexander Hacke (Einstürzende Neubauten), David Yow (Scratch Acid, the Jesus Lizard), Bobb Bruno (Best Coast), Jenny Lee Linberg (Warpaint), Bonnie Mercer (Grey Daturas, Dead River), and Steve Patrick (Useless Children). In 2013, the team released a self-titled debut on Joyful Noise, and now they’re back with a special box set release set to drop September 25.

Check out clips from some of the tracks in the wonderful video below, which basically is like a weird dream anyway, or maybe like a catalogue of a rich man from True Detective Season 3’s loopy fetishes. Seriously, just watch it. You can thank me later.

The box set features three split 10-inch records, featuring new tracks with Dumb Numbers, plus work from The Melvins, David Yow, and David Lynch. It’s available now as a pre-order.
