Titled after the dreams she had about the record cover being shiny gold, “Golder” represents Haley striving to become a better artist, growing with each song she writes. Recorded at Pachyderm studio (Nirvana, PJ Harvey) in Cannon Falls, MN, Haley and band went in knowing most of the songs in advance, but reconstructed them while in the studio. The songs themselves are largely a reflection of a wonderful and lonely year spent in Portland, Oregon. Haley recently returned to the Twin Cities in July 2010, became active once again in the amazing music scene (including the formation of a punk/new-wave side project Gramma’s Boyfriend) and is set to get out on the road and play songs from “Golder.”
“Golder,” is an evolution into something brighter, heavier, and stronger.
