Plunderbund (defined in the dictionary as "a league of commercial, political, or financial interests that exploits the public") plays alternative and power pop tunes.
In summer 2019, they released a video for their track "Matter of Fact." "We would have had to have included a few models in lingerie for that," says Daniel Westrick.
A followup videoto "Matter of Fact" called "Home" was started in July 2019 but not finished until the end of 2020, after the Covid-19 pandemic had been raging for nearly a year. It's described by Daniel Westrick as "a towering testament both to world-class, epic procrastination and to negligent self-care. The songs are both from our 2019 EP. After the 'Matter of Fact' video was released, I was all pumped up and wanted to do another one quickly. I planned to shoot scenes in Slab City near the Salton Sea and didn’t want to wait, so we went out in 115 degree heat in July. My wife nearly passed out helping us. So I guess my inspiration kind of got melted from the heat. The footage sat on the shelf until almost exactly a year later when we shot more scenes at Fiesta Island. Then more procrastination until now. Lisa Brackmann, our bass player and the star of 'Home' is leaving San Diego next month, so I wanted to get this done before then."
"We shot a lot of it at the East Jesus art colony in Slab City. We compensated them for allowing us to shoot by giving them a bottle of whisky and a bag of ice. Because it was so hot, only two caretakers were holding down the fort. One was a nice young artist who made glass and copper dildos and butt-plugs that he offered to sell us at a great discount. Apparently the copper was important for Tantric energy. After I posted the video, I tried to place a Facebook ad, but it was rejected because of political content. From what I can tell, Facebook algorithms are reading the slogans on the wall of old TVs at East Jesus and finding them controversial. Everyone’s a critic."
