Giles Corey - Giles Corey (2011)


Holy moly i have listened to the first song off this album like more than a dozen times in a row it is so good. All day now, this album. Where did i even find this?

Giles Corey is a project by Dan Barrett (of Have A Nice Life), that i have seen described as "acoustic music from the industrial revolution". This "portrait of depression" is a haunting mix of acoustic americana (not far from Timber Timbre), Dead Man's Bones-y deconstructed pop, some shoegazey influences, and maybe some similarity to A Silver Mt Zion? It is pretty incredibly good. It must be experienced, so you must listen. Haunting, and it will catch you by surprise.

i am glad to be excited by some music
it has been a dry couple months for really exciting music for me

i can't imagine a less professional way of reviewing albums than the way i review albums
i don't even punctuate consistently and my sentence structure is that of an uninteresting autistic
i hope people at least enjoy the music that i find and broadcast
i mean i'd be finding it anyway
i was compulsively hunting for music for years before i decided to blogoscope about it
i hope you like my stupid blog
it's been almost three years and if anything i am actually worse at it than i was when i started
firing off words into space i know nobody actually reads my reviews i look at my google analytics stats
i know yalls just come here for the free music but hey at least ive refocused this to fairly unknown bands so i hope some of yalls actually use this as a source rather than just a googling of "(band) (album) mediafire"
oh man what am i even talking about

listen to lots of music


BUY IT HERE it took four years to make! and it comes with a book!


have a nice night


  1. hey chris, just sayin': don't expect too much from blogging. it's not disrespecting you if someone is more into music than into your reviews. it's just a different focus, and you shouldn't read too much into it.

  2. Hey Chris, I read your album reviews! I CONSTANTLY visit your blog for new music! You do a great job, keep it up :)

  3. News, upcoming shows and finest downloads! Keep The Faith.
