Gilder / Bilín Wake - Gold to Gold


I will never hear you say, “I could have made more of you, something more wild.” You should have gone with them in the red dust grass, the dogs dancing with Saint Vitus under Jupiter, each perfect wave an attempt to bloody your hands on the sky and all it held back from me. Make no sign, even in howled-upon, hemorrhaging night without gentle forms of any kind. I’ve made my own fine, heroic sweeps in dust, traced grand directives in sand with branch and horn. But now it’s only fists in the city, scratch scratch scratch concrete, coughing and counting and waking up wrong, always getting jammed in between. At the beginning, I have to imagine, they mostly talked about the end. At the beginning, I have to imagine, they mostly struggled to identify that moment marked by a sensation of falling backwards and down at exponential speeds, a sense of some soaring approach of imminent release, skating a slope, frayed rope impossibly on both sides of some impossible division, divided and so not announcing itself except in the shock of emergence from the state which defines one's being there. If I can figure out who I am tomorrow morning, I promise you will not hear me say, "You could have made more of me."


Gilder :: Solo project of Michael Gillilan, who has drummed in
Chicago bands J Fernandez, Thin Hymns and This Is Cinema. Mixing
melodic improvisations with patient repetition, Gilder creates a kind
of ambient minimalism that evokes a longing for the familiar, coupled
with the tension of inevitable change.

Bilín Wake :: Duo project of Mark Trecka and Evan Hydzik, both founding members of Pillars and Tongues.


This marks the first release for these 3 artist on Unknown Tone, and will be avaliable as a 30min split cassette release. We hope you enjoy the music and thank you for your love and support.
