In my monthly Corey Cunningham update, today we have a synth driven pop hit from his Business of Dreams project. Immediately your ears are hit with bouncing rhythms, quite playful from the get-go. Vocally, Corey dreamily drapes his voice atop those beats, allowing juxtaposed feelings to mesh perfectly in your speakers. Listen closely at the 1.20 minute mark, where a nice little guitar dances around in the chorus, furthering the delight for listeners. This song will appear on the debut Business of Dreams LP, which comes via Cunningham’s label, Parked in Hell, on February 2nd. Listen now and thank me later.

Surely you’ve heard me rave about everything Corey Cunningham has done, from his projects like Magic Bullets, Terry Malts and his own solo work. But, he’s just come out that he’ll be working under the moniker of Business of Dreams, crafting delightfully dark pop music. Please don’t label it as strictly synth pop, as there’s definitely more. Just take the opener on his new EP, which takes a slight turn around the 1.20 minute mark with a twinkling guitar chord. If you’re asking me, I’ll trust anything Corey touches, and this new EP he’s just put up is now available digitally, so it’s time for you to fall head over heels with his new work.
I definitely don’t hide the fact that I adore Terry Malts, who are about to have a great week. But, on the side, their guitarist Corey Cunningham has something going on the side, which I’m quite enjoying. It’s the limited Is This Really Really Real 7″, which is being put out by LogLady Records. Sure, there’s that distorted darkness that the Malts often take on, but there’s a drum machine serving to propel the song forwards, whilst the guitar carefully accompanies Corey’s soft vocals. I don’t see any reason why this track won’t gain a lot of steam this week; it’s a definite hit in my book!
