Playing with Half a DECK

Dec. 8, 2023

Greetings, Hills website visitor!

They said it couldn't be done. They said we'd certainly fail. They said we weren't up to the task. And guess what? They may be right! No one knows what happens next, we already know that, but we ARE at the halfway point of creating DECK—a 52 song, 4 album project with a track for every card in a standard deck of cards. There will be no compulsory champagne popped until all 52 are securely tucked into the pack, and so for now, we toil onward.

Today, though, we are sharing a little sign of life from behind the walls of Hillz secrecy. Please meet “Alone, In Love”: our electric new 7-minute signal, AKA the 5 of Diamonds, available everywhere you get your music right now. It was recorded, mixed, and mastered at Machines with Magnets by Seth Manchester during the DIAMONDS sessions. We hope you like it!

It seems extremely reasonable, as of right now, to assure you that DECK will be out in late 2024. How are we supporting this gigantic project without playing an enormous pile of live shows? With the DECK Patreon, of course. We do a flat fee, one tier, and we overdo it every month over there with music, podcasts, and videos. It's amazing what we've been able to achieve with the support of our ride or dies. Join us there if you wanna!
