Album Notes
The pieces that make up KILN's Twinewheel [Lost-Sides and Dusty-Gems 1994–2005] were initially gathered and arranged in 2001 to be released as a bridge between the naturalistic electrified shred of Ampday and the more lushly pulsed and abstract hues of Sunbox. Eventually released January 2006 as a limited vinyl edition of 500, Twinewheel [Lost-Sides and Dusty-Gems 1994–2005] collects elements of abandoned albums, session outtakes, transitional works, and shelved history—re-mastered and arranged to form a satisfyingly cogent array of formerly homeless KILN kuts. Available digitally in its entirety for the first time in January 2008. (note: copies of the lovely vinyl artifact are still available and can be acquired quite affordably through Division Sound at ).

Praise for Twinewheel:

"(Kiln) alchemize electro-acoustic elements of post-rock, shoegaze, and ambient into atmospheres of textural opulence." -Textura

"Kiln’s music, made by a trio of multi-instrumentalists working with digital and tangible tools, is new to me, but it doesn’t feel that way: it supercedes labels like “post-rock” or “Tortoise-esque” or “bespectacled” by virtue of how much ground these tracks cover, genre-wise and within the listener’s imagination." -Dusted

Praise for Dusker:

"The term ‘meticulous' finds its most perfect application in describing the music of Kiln. Every element and moment of the group's full-length Ghostly debut, Dusker, is painstakingly considered, resulting in one of the most purely satisfying listening experiences in recent memory." -Textura

"Nodding to multiple genres without bowing to any, Kiln marry digital and meatworld sounds so adroitly on Dusker that identifying sources is both irresistible and impossible." -PaperThinWalls

" of the few bands that makes textured, experimental instrumentation exciting." -XLR8R

"Dusker is an experience worth sharing, each moment echoing and crumbling with grace and hesitation, no matter which track is played first." -Orlando Weekly

"It's an audiophile's genre, and Kiln's magic lies in creating a sonic wash and overlaying it with galaxies of sculpted, pearly sounds, many from guitars or keyboards, synthetically generated tones, or samples from sources hard to identify." -LansingStateJournal

"The chilled-out, cloistered mood of Dusker makes the world melt away, lulling the listener into relaxing, meditative expanses." -Alarm

Praise for KILN in general:

“...fizzling with warm electronic beauty, sparse sinuous beats and innovation.” -Wallpaper

“...sound sculptures of panoramic depth and kaleidoscopic radiance...” -All Music Guide

“Lush musical event constructions from former members of Fibreforms /Waterwheel; layers of spacious southwestern guitar melodies, over earthy, sometimes funky drumming, their previous EP got many rave reviews (among them from Alternative Press which said that they “sound so natural and unforced that they could have arisen spontaneously from private conversations among the instruments”), supple, ambient music that’s so good, and in this case, sounds so good, that it should be playing from many stereos across the land, making a spectacular and immediate broadcast connection for the pleasure of a massive all.”
-Avant Garde

“With each album, Kiln consistently shatter the Platonic Ideal of beauty and grace in music, only to rebuild it to a height out of reach of anyone but themselves. ” -Brainwashed
