This survey of Daved Hild’s earliest post-Girls work includes “The Fear,” recorded for a proposed Lust / Unlust EP with Robin Amos and Roger Miller; Mennonite-costumed duets with Miller; and demo tracks recorded with Miller, David Minehan of The Neighborhoods, and Dan Saltzmann of Maps and Christmas. Hild’s “approach to songwriting … cuts into personal flesh no matter whether he knows anything about yr history or not,” says Byron Coley. “Singing like a pro wrestler trying to get all sensitive, he … convey[s] huge vistas of hurt and strangeness without coming off like either a fop or a thug.” Edition of 350.
