Trick (or Treat) your Ears!


Now Available on Bandcamp!

It’s Halloween weekend, which is the perfect time to discover our new album! You can stream it for free on Bandcamp!

The album was officially released Thursday, Oct. 27, 2023, exclusively on Bandcamp. It’s full of spooky songs, nostalgic vibes, and campy horror-show lyrics with a sneaky kind of depth.

In the title-track, a young couple rides a haunted-house, and sneak out of their cart to go make-out behind a gory display — while in a parallel universe, Adam and Eve conspire toward the forbidden. In another, a 13-year-old boy begins to discover that he’s a werewolf. In yet another, a serial-killer’s murders become revered as high-art.

It’s a big, surreal, cinematic kind of album. Put it in on your personal airwaves, and make us a part of your Halloween weekend!

While you can certainly choose to listen for free, you also have the option to purchase a download. With your order, you’ll not only get all the audio in whatever format you choose, but you’ll also get a dee-luxe digital booklet which contains art, lyrics, and more!

A Dark Ride

We named this album after the Phantasmagoria haunted-house, which operated at Bell’s Amusement Park, in our home-base of Tulsa, Oklahoma, from 1972 through the park’s closure in 2006. Designed by the legendary Bill Tracy, in coordination with the family of Robert Bell, Sr., it was a remarkable attraction in its heyday, as well as an expression of the fears and anxieties of the culture that produced it. It no longer exists.

Our album offers a similar “dark ride” experience, wrapped in a certain nostalgia for eras lost. Step inside, won’t you?

About the Band

Beneath the wide-open sky of Northeastern Oklahoma, where the Arkansas River rambles among the Osage Hills, four friends with a mutual interest in rock-music, and its legacy, and its future, joined together to form a band called Dachshund.

Inspired by a cross-section of genre-defying (and genre-defining) heroes like Radiohead, Hum, Bowie, Helmet, Queens of the Stone Age, and Soundgarden — as well as various unsung local influences — these four friends set out to bend the rules of rock-music to their own whims, in an effort to achieve a more personal kind of expression. They continue to create music which expresses something of themselves, and of the places from which they came.

Hailing from the greater Tulsa area — a location known simultaneously as the “Middle of Nowhere” and the “Center of the Universe” — Dachshund strives to embrace contradiction and resist restrictive preconceptions.

Our music is a cinema of the mind, with a screen as wide as the Oklahoma sky.
