Steve Kilbey & Russell P. Kilbey - Gilt Trip (1997)

The Church - Untitled #23 (2009)

First of two albums from this fruitful collaboration between Steve Kilbey (The Church) and Grant McLennan (The Go-Betweens, who I still haven't really given a good listen). Jangly guitars, drum machines, gauzy synths, and heavy-lidded vocals. Way better than an obscure side project of this nature has any business being.

1. Every Hour God Sends
2. Birdowner (As Seen on T.V.)
3. Civil War Lament
4. Geneva 4 a.m.
5. Trapeze Boy
6. Providence
7. Thought That I Was Over You
8. Theshold
9. Number Eleven
10. Didn't Know Where I Was
11. Even as We Speak
12. Ramble
13. Everything Takes Forever

  1. I'm a Go-Betweens fan and didn't know this existed. Will certainly check this out.

  2. I had forgotten about this one. Remember liking it back in the day. Gracias.
