I moved so orders were put on hold.
I am shipping an order out today.
I need to check but it could be one of the last CMAR 2009 DVD’s.
vel0 was the project created by taylor rust and sean conley after greenhill ended. the writing process was slow, as the songs were complex and needed time to breathe. The structures of the songs eventually settled and became what they are now. They recorded a 2 song demo, and then later a live e.p. before putting together a full length “ten” that used various studio songs, as well as live performances. ryan lewis played bass with the band in 2006 and appears on several tracks. the last few songs of the band were written as a two piece before they played their last show in march 2007.
the album opens up with a live version of the song “untitled” which is the band’s first song ever written.
“plurals” is the album’s most put together song, blending instrumental mathy parts with post rock pieces, taking nods from tristeza. “census” is a slow post rock jam influenced by mogwai with layers of reverbed guitar. “floorplan” is the first time we hear vocals on the album. “odds and ends” sounds like a fitting title, with this song having odd time signatures and intricate pieces, directly influenced by bikegang knifefight. the latter part of the album sees songs like “a longer day” and “guidance” becoming more complex and fast. The last track “yes is always wrong” was an improvisation recorded on tape at the band’s practice space towards the end of the band’s existence.
this band was the culmination of two musicians who wrote music together without any genre in mind or idea of what would become of it. this album is a collective entity of everything they created.
it was put out on CD-R’s that are sold out, but it is available now to download and stream.
This is the second and last album by the band greenhill. It incorporated some more instruments and is more mature and cohesive as the first. The album begins in a somber way, and picks up becoming more dark, before ending with a piano track and a secret guitar track, that later appeared on the soundtrack for a the short film, time past. The band appeared to be more musically sound on this album, exploring longer song lengths and diverse song structures.
The track “a good home is happiness” saw the band departing from their original sound and led to the creation of the band “velo,” whose album will be premiering soon on here as well.
greenhill’s first album “work in progress” is now available for streaming and download on bandcamp:
greenhill was the first band of taylor rust and sean conley. these songs were written as each other learned how to play their instruments and songs were recorded live with a tape player.
this was the first release on sleepinghouse records in 2004.
Taylor Rust of the former vel0 and greenhill is doing his own thing now called T.Rust, and it’s really good.
this is a music video for one of his songs off his e.p. directed by sean conley.
