In attempt to connect deeply with nature my newly-released album, Revisionist History, is immersed in atmospheric field recordings and jazz-inspired drone. The album looks to delve into the embrace of a warm, youthful summer’s day and perhaps explore what mental state endured by such an environment. This album was made as a direct response to my previous album Manifest Destiny. It follows the lighter pathways opened in conclusion of its predecessor. Revisionist History was made carefully and purposefully. I got a lot out of making this thing and I hope you do as well. Thanks for reading and enjoy!

Manifest Destiny was a labor of love. Or of falling out of love. I funneled my emotions from a turbulent time of self-reflection into an album that I feel deeply connected to. If nothing else I think one can say that it’s sincere. Along the way I felt the urge to document moments that captured the mood of the record, which turned into snapshots of each song and eventually what I have to present to you now: Manifest Destiny, the film. It’s somewhere between a home movie and an art film; just as experimental as the album. These are vague allusions to the memories that inspired these songs meant for background play as you listen to the album.

Moody and throbbing, I've released "Manifest Destiny" under the name Gilman Mom. Full of dark chords, heartfelt vocals, and field recordings, is the very first release by Macaque Records.
This album that attempts to musically convey a perspective shift that I had during a storm. I found myself drenched and devastated after a late night walk, mother nature pouring around me. I stayed in a dark place for quite some time during this abnormally long act of nature. Something remarkable happened: as I found myself learning from my predicament and emotionally emerging into a new state, the storm faded. I've never been that entwined with nature and it felt truly remarkable.
This project means a lot to me and I sincerely hope someone else is able to connect with it the way I do.
Check it out!

Right now, I am absolutely stumped at what to write in explanation of uploading my label’s entire music catalogue to the Free Music Archive. I’ve sat here for at least 20 minutes in a Minneapolis coffee shop, damn bewildered at where to start, or even the intonation to take with this piece.
When I booked my first tour with The Blend, back in 2005, I bought as many blank CDs as possible to mail out to each city we planned to hit. Each CD had a flier stapled to its case, and was distributed by a coffee shop or friend willing to prop them up in a visible spot, or hand out. With that maneuver, we were able to pull a fan-base that had never seen us before, but had heard our sound. The simplicity of giving our music out for free, created an invaluable ripple effect across the country. Soon, as myspace, facebook and other social media sites arose to prominence, we were able to stream our music to anyone that happened to cross our site. Now, I know how way, way, way back this is. I mean, I just referenced myspace. Not the Justin-Timberlake-owned-newly-revamped myspace, but the original myspace with the user experience of a Neanderthal, and fonts worse than “Papyrus” or “Impact”.
Over the past decade, The Blend, and several other bands I’ve managed, have produced amazing music and then moved on to other projects. However, in an effort to preserve the integrity of these projects (or albums), I’ve sought to keep as much of the music alive online, as possible.
