“Hilyard’s latest original release on Stereoscenic evokes both warm colors, cold temperature, intimacy, and immensity all at once, the musical equivalent of seeing your breath in the winter or smelling wet evergreens. Orchestral swells, deep string patches, and field recordings ebb in and out of each other, at moments coalescing into one instrument only to dissolve and disappear at others. Absolutely gorgeous, verdant drone.”
— Aaron Stein-Chester, Editor at Earbits

From deep in the forests of Maine, often recording from a tent, Hilyard presents this collection of songs as something of a journal. Despite being recorded at different points from late 2013 to early 2016, they come together quite well to take us on a journey...

Ominous yet beautiful, the opening tracks perfectly match the amber sunset on the front cover. From there, the album takes us further into the mysteries of the evening, and draws to a close peacefully in slumber.
