about

The Longwalls return with their 5th release, Gold Standard, out 2/24/15 on Static Motor Recordings.

After a series of contemplative EPs, Gold Standard is 11 tracks of glorious, fuzzed-out, Americana-infused post-pop. And no, the title is certainly not a statement. It's a nostalgic reference to an unattainable past. There was a time where there was a bona fide benchmark. That time, whether or not the benchmark actually existed or not, is gone. Misguided nationalistic optimism to the extreme. An idealized form. A gold standard now rendered antiquated by the march of reality, modernity, and violence. So..., now what?
