Emily chats with Indianna Hale about her new album, Yesterday's Glitter, which is out now on Perpetual Doom.

Indianna's co-producer Jason Cirimele also joins in on the chat and the two discuss their collaboration on this record, as well as their many additional musical projects. Listen Now


Yesterday’s Glitter, a new record from San Francisco’s Indianna Hale features indie rock in the vein of Cate Le Bon, Faye Webster, and Cass McCombs and draws from 1950s torch-pop icons like Patsy Cline, the songs on Yesterday’s Glitter come wrapped in A.M.-era gauze. It's classic Indianna Hale —the perfect fusion of Marty Robbins and Liz Phair you never knew you needed.  

The twelve tracks on Yesterday's Glitter resonate with vintage timbre but they also cut with a twenty-first century urgency. Lead Single “I Can’t Talk To You” lightly teases a lover for being too self centered, while the melodic bass and chimey guitar weave a counterpoint that almost tells a story of its own. “Nothing you can say to a person with a broken heart,” she sings. “Nothing you can hear when the song in your head’s too country.” The album's second single, "Hollow the Words," is sonically peppy and lilting, but finds clouds behind its silver lining. "It was tragically beautiful being with you," Hale sings. She describes the song, inspired by the transience of San Francisco, as "a love song to my friend family." It's emblematic of an album whose rumbling bass and soaring vocals are always pretty, but never simple.

Hale describes recording Yesterday's Glitter as a serendipitous process of "electric collaboration" alongside producer and guitar player Jason Cirimele. "While tracking 'The Tighter the Grip,' Jason said 'You know what this song needs?' To which I replied, 'Fuzz bass chords on the chorus!' He said 'That’s exactly what I was going to say!'" Over the course of three years, the pair brought in friends and bandmates to create the record’s rich sound, including Brian Bethel on bass and Rob Mills (Spooky Mansion) and Cody Rhodes (Geographer, Curls) on drums. On Yesterday’s Glitter, mid-century country pop stylings get fitted with fuzzy guitars and filtered through a curtain of dreamy Casio nostalgia to create an album you’ll have on repeat.

Season 3 of Perpetual Doom's "Stay Tuned" series continues. Bill Baird covers the theme classic 80's sitcom 'Silver Spoons' about a boy raised by his wealthy father in a lavish mansion filled with extravagant toys. 📺🎶⁣⁣ ⁣⁣

"Silver Spoons was my first exposure to harmonized lead guitars and it made a deep, unshakable impression. I love how quickly it ramps up and how it can explore a whole range of human emotion in less than a minute. I don't remember much about the show except being jealous of the fact that Ricky Schroeder had a pet robot.” - Bill Baird ⁣⁣

Dust Collector covers the theme to Inspector Gadget, an animated series about a bumbling but well-meaning detective. 📺🎶⁣⁣⁣ ⁣

""My parents didn’t want a TV in the house when I was growing up. They thought it could inhibit creativity and independent thinking. TV was for special occasions like visiting grandparents or slumber parties.One time I got a second degree sunburn all over my upper body on a field trip to a water park in the 4th grade. All I could do was cry in a big green chair for three days and nights. My parents went to the video store and rented a small TV/VCR and a whole pile of video tapes. I think I watched 15 or more movies in three days, but the only movie I can remember watching is Desperately Seeking Susan. I didn’t really know who Madonna was, but I did have an aunt named Susan who also had striking blue eyes. She was married to my uncle Steve, who made a good living editing TV and movies. So, TV can’t be all that bad. Steve worked on some pretty famous shows. None of them were Inspector Gadget, which is one of the shows I remember watching at my grandmas house when my parents were out “honkey tonkin’”, as they put it. The theme song got burned into my bones at an early age. I have suspicions it has a hand in some of the life choices I make today. Whether or not my parents were right about TV, I had a blast getting deep into the nitty-gritty of this music. I learned it was based on another composition, “In the Hall of the Mountain King”, which upon closer inspection, I was already familiar with." - Dust Collector

Dust Collector is a music based project of Jason Cirimele. Since 2003, it keeps taking different forms while trying to prove the same point. He’s rapped, he’s scratched, he’s crooned, he’s mumbled, he’s whined, he’s grumbled, he’s wept, he’s crumbled, he’s thrashed, he’s mathed and will keep doing so, because it’s all he knows to do. When he’s not collecting dust, he’s playing with various bands around the SF Bay Area, or splitting firewood, shirtless in overalls, where he lives in Pescadero. ⁣
