Evan Caminiti (1/2 of Barn Owl) to release Night Dust on May 15. He'll teach you how to fight vampires, too.

Remember a couple months back when I told you about Jon Porras’ solo LP? Let me tell you a bit about his partner-in-crime, Evan Caminiti. In addition to his work with Porras as Barn Owl, Caminiti has worked with Lisa McGee as Higuma and released three LPs under his own name — and on May 15 he’ll release another one on Immune Recordings called Night Dust, on limited LP and cassette. Immune tells me that, for this record, “Caminiti shifted the focus away from amplifier worship and the desert themes his work is often associated with to focus on texture, fractured dub techniques, and spacious electric guitar composition” and that “guitars moan like horns through empty city streets, vocal samples erode in devotional bliss, and webs of synthesizer float like mist.”

Not only is Night Dust Evan Caminiti’s Immune debut, but it could also be the title of a wild new vampire flick. After all, according to Immune, “smokey blue hues and washed out lights of some of the 80’s best vampire movies” inspired the album.

So, Night Dust, the movie, would be about a vampire who works as a street magician by day and preys only on people who have blue hair or blue eyes. He sends out an owl messenger to find out where the victims live, then he breaks into their houses at midnight and casts spells on them with enchanted dust. Only a blind banjo-player knows the truth, but no one bothers to listen to him. By the end of the movie, the vampire has destroyed the town! Coming to a theater near you May 15.
