Then, he nearly killed himself. Instead of following through with that, he started a project: a search through any and every piece of written word that he could find to determine if life were worth living.
Giles Corey became a way to catalog those thoughts, books, and events, to put them in a box, and to hopefully put them away forever.
These songs range from alt-country, to gospel-influenced shoegaze, to synth-heavy folk; they go from upbeat to depressed, from barely-there to epic and sprawling. But every song here shares a root in a struggle to decide if life was worth the trouble.
Giles Corey’s self-titled debut is almost more story than record. Told through photographs, prose, and music, it explores the progression from life to suicidal depression and back again. It’s also one of the only examinations of the work of Robert Voor, the author of On An Obscure Text, which accompanied the Have A Nice Life album “Deathconsciousness.”
