Early one morning, this morning, I began my day by browsing the internet for various comments, subjects, pictures, places, and people. A typical routine most of the time and rather therapeutic. I spend most of my time engulfing my retinas in “blue light” and considering myself luckier than most the people that are posting videos of their kids being hurt or the ones that try to assert their worldly views through memes and other text based posts that are certainly not made by that individual. Yes, Saturday morning is no longer dedicated to cartoons but instead the amusement of social media. A good substitute? I think not. Lastly, to paint a more vivid picture, I’m sitting in my dark apartment wearing yesterdays shirt and walking around in my boxers. A perfect day.
L-drizzle here with some updates.
So what’s new?
Lots, but nothing too concrete to share at the moment but there is much music being conjured and if you’ve been following us on the ol’ Facebook or SoundCloud then you may have heard snippets and demos of the works-in-progress. If you missed them don’t fret, there’s more to come. I’m not one to count the chickens before they hatch and we’ve never been too keen on setting a date until the music is done but if all pans out as it has in the past then we can probably look forward to a fall release of this new material.
With a side of?
Progress has been made on the ToySoldiersUnite side project. All I’m willing to say now is it’s basically a concept EP by a fictional group. There will be instrumental versions of the songs for folks to download and use in their own videos as well. It’s original purpose was for a set of PSAs for TSU propaganda, this is still the part of the plan, but due to technical holdups they have not been filmed yet.
We’ve been asked if we have or will play live in the future. Pft. No. We haven’t, not as Neuron Dreamtime, not yet, and yes we actually do have some plans to play live. These plans consist of evaluating and getting the rest of the equipment we need to re-create and perform our songs in a minimalist fashion while still having room to improvise and make each time through different. Once that prerequisite is fulfilled then we must practice, practice, practice with said equipment. If recruitment is needed we may recruit one other. Including the drummer friend who is interested that would make us a solid four piece. We desire some sort of light show or accompanying VJ projector as well, because we are artsy-fartsy like that and have tons of ideas that we want to shove into faces, melting the eyes. So when that criteria is met you bet your ass we’ll be setting out for local gigs with other local talent of the weird and wild variety. All in time. We can not rush ourselves. Music first, gig later.
Lastly, a merchandise plug. [insert evil laugh]!!!
Here are a couple ND tees available on RedBubble now.
It’s certainly been a minute or two since our last post here at the ND nexus. So today, to show some love, we’re making public the Zero Cliff bonus album, The Ledge Beyond The Edge. It was given as a sort of secret special thank you to supporters and lucky strangers. Some good stuff on here. Tell your friends.
Yesterday saw the debut of a horror short with a music score composed by yours truly. The seven and a half minute short titled “In His Name” was written, directed, and edited by Jared Ouelette of Uncut Pictures. Tell your friends.
Not a whole lot going on in terms of new Dreamtime tunes, just some sound sketches and a couple demos. Nothing fancy. Yet. But tell your friends.
Winter has been a real bitch this year near the ND nexus. Keep warm, cover your mouth when you cough or sneeze and wash your hands. Tell your friends.
Well, time to go piddle-fart around for a little bit.
Tell your friends.
It’s here and it’s magnificent!

DJ Mac of WoodyRadio has been working closely with us and the other bands included to produce volume 1 of “Post Alternative Visions”.
“These bands, artists and songs represent respect for and musical influences of past alternative genres with an original updated sound and poignant lyrics. Ranging from the dark, post-punk influenced melodies of Hyena Motorcade, Hearts Fail, The Secret Post, The Seraphim Rising, Their Planes Will Block Out The Sun, Kill the Reflection, IceChrystalls, to the cross-genre brilliance of Carved Lies, Hilliat Fields, 13 Monsters, and Stigmata, to the electronic creativity of Neuron Dreamtime, Vodsel, Preacherz of the Savage Truth, and Zeitfaktor, this group of creative bands offer originality and nonconformity. Paying homage to the past allows you to acknowledge where you’ve been while going somewhere new. This international collaboration from 15 independent bands and one internet radio DJ will be delivered for no charge using Bandcamp.”
