Old Gold was written, played and recorded by Andrew Wilson. He has released records as Andras, A.R.T. Wilson, Berko and House Of Dad and he is one half of Wilson Tanner. It's a collection of fragile, private and deranged songs amidst the Victorian Gold Rush of 1850s. Gut string guitars, water-logged mandolins, bar room banjos and no-fidelity piano all sound perfectly organic - except they're not. No acoustic instruments were handled in the making of the record, and the reproduction of familiar sounds via inorganic means situates the record in a moonlit, melancholy hole of its own.
