Text excerpt by Ansible Editions:

"... Even as far back as 2001, VICE cited Dunsmuir as "Toronto's unsung guitar god," touting the fact that "his low-key guitar looping pedal performances [as Guitarkestra] have made people actually cry." Since that time, Dunsmuir has adopted an increasingly varied compositional approach, one that has yielded everything from asymmetrical beat-work to churning cacophony, strobing polyrhythms to ambient euphoria.

Glissandro 70, his duo with Sandro Perri, served up quirk-infested disco on their lone self-titled 2006 album for Constellation Records, prompting All Music Guide to hail it as "one of the more auspicious debuts to come down the pike in a long while." Following a slew of homespun, xerox-sleeved CD-R releases, the Montréal imprint released another LP for Dunsmuir, Kanada 70's Vamp Ire, which compiled highlights from his various handcrafted outings.

When his Dun-Dun Band emerged in early 2016, it marked a significant progression in Dunsmuir's explorations. Despite his ardent and visible support for the local scene, Dunsmuir had (apart from his collaborations with Perri, the last of which were released on that year's Off World 2) largely led a more or less hermetic creative existence; Dun-Dun Band signaled an opening-up of his musical world, seeing him surround himself with an eclectic and carefully curated cast of performers—some of Toronto's finest.

Stylistically, the group also expands Dunsmuir's already generous sonic range, embracing elements of jazz, American minimalism, and the mellower end of instrumental prog- and post-rock, as well as traits that recall various African traditions. Dunsmuir's writing for the band orbits odd -meter grooves, featuring spur-of-the-moment arrangements that he cues and conducts. Inasmuch as these spontaneous events highlight the individual improvisational personalities of his collaborators, they also stimulate conversation between band members, permitting a wide range of musical influences and vocabulary to nourish the music."
