*FIRST RUN COLORED VINYL* In 2013, DiSalvo was approached
to do an acoustic performance at
an art gallery in Providence, Rhode
Island by friends from the local
scene. Unsure of how to make
quiet music, he enlisted the help
of friend Michael Risberg - at the
time not yet a member of Elder
- to write some material for the
gig. After a few songwriting sessions
between Providence and
Boston, Gold and Silver was born.
What was originally intended to be
acoustic was quickly amplified as
the group formed a full live lineup
and fleshed out their set.
Two of the songs from this original
catalyst concert make up the A and
B sides of Azurite and Malachite,
recorded in 2014 in a single day at
a friend’s recording studio in New
Bedford, Massachusetts. The album’s
A-side Azurite is the lengthier
of the two songs, moving deftly between passages of Mellotronladen,
hypnotic rock and progressive
breakdowns. On Malachite,
a slowly developing, melancholy
melody makes way for waves of
increasing intensity crashing over
it, concluding in a dirty and chaotic
crescendo. Azurite and Malachite
is a harbinger of the progressive
and experimental elements in
Elder’s modern sound, but remains
very much its own unique project
with its own voice.
In 2018, DiSalvo and Risberg revived
the band and began making
plans for a new record and more
shows. Accordingly, Stickman is
re-releasing Azurite and Malachite,
which has been out of print
for some time. The record has been
mastered for vinyl for the first time
ever by Carl Saff and is available on
180 gram, tricolor marbled vinyl
including download code.
