When Mark Twain coined the term "The Gilded Age" he was describing the Reconstruction Era's thin veneer that masked substantial social struggle. Nostalgia is like the gilded age of memory. It's easy for the mind to increase the former glory, the perfect sheen, the once timelessness of present-day ruins.
On this album we wanted to occupy that powerful place of the human mind, the mental eye that can see erosion and cracks and envision a palace. We focused primarily on simple organic instruments: drum, bass, guitar, piano, percussion, played live in a room. The overall mood is one of reflective happiness, the joy of the impermanent, nostalgia of halcyon days.
Remixes from four superb down-tempo electronic producers take the nostalgia into deeper realms. The place where the brain starts reflecting on reflections and mixing together dreams and realities. Welcome to the Gilded Age.
