Like 2013’s ‘Lousy with Sylvianbriar’, ‘Aureate Gloom’ was recorded directly to tape with musicians Kevin Barnes (guitar, vocals), Clayton Rychlik (drums), Bob Parins (bass), Bennett Lewis (guitar), and JoJo Glidewell (keys), plus the help of engineer Drew Vandenberg.
Having already spent many of the previous months touring together, the strength of the members’ musical rapport was instantly apparent. The group completed nearly a song a day during their stay in the desert and even wrote a brand new track on the spot, ‘Apollyon of Blue Room,’ whose title references a supposedly haunted bedroom in a hacienda on the studio grounds.
The full track-listing for ‘Aureate Gloom’ is as follows…
Last Rites at the Jane Hotel
Apollyon of Blue Room
Chthonian Dirge for Uruk the Other
Like Askoka’s Inferno of Memory
