Built Guilt, a wistful but wise big brother to 2009’s Here We Go, Down the Black Hole. Another beautiful record from the group. Only available digitally.
They say to keep your friends close and your enemies closer, but how do you handle encounters with creatures so wicked they drift into your dreams and haunt your being? Sucker punch them from the inside, and write your next album for the nasty beasts, dedicating each and every note, lyric, strum and beat to their extinction.
This is a beautiful record. Now only available digitally.
The culmination of a project which began late in 2004, Here We Go… was almost all recorded and self-produced from Jordy’s various homes as he moved around Sydney’s inner-West. It’s this bedroom-fidelity that allowed him to so effectively capture and reproduce the dreamy, contemplative and occasionally abstract moods you can only arrive at in your own space and time. With occasional backing vocals from Sarah Kelly (on ‘Galileo’) and Kaity Fox (on ‘Oh My God’), and cello from Ella Colley (on ‘This Is Death’ and ‘Oh My God Again’), the majority of the album is just Jordy, his pensive mind, his captivating voice and his computer.
