Saints of Grace

by Dylan Golden Aycock



We are more than thrilled to add the work of Dylan Golden Aycock to growing body of artists donating their music to Heligator Records. Dylan is the founder/proprietor of the Tulsa, OK based record label Scissor Tail Editions and is responsible for some of the more beautiful tracks to come out of the American (and Intl.) West including a Lake Mary/Padang Food Tigers split 7", Bruce Langhorne reissue and a Robin Allender album.

Dylan performs these sonorous acoustic guitar under his given name as well as under the moniker Talk West and the projects Angel Food and Mohwak Park with fellow OK resident and legend Brad Rose.

Aycock's composition for Heligator is a remarkable piece of music. A laid-back finger-picked composition straddling the line between American West balladry and neo-classical explorations of droning sustained tones. The result is something distinctly...American. Something distinctly expansive and unhedged. Like the long corridors connecting town to town on long drives through Oklahoma, the beauty of this composition is found somewhere in those middle passages between distinct notes where the reverb hangs heavy in the air and just floats for a while: suspended and golden.

Every cent spent on this track goes to the Malindza Refugee Camp Library in Mpaka, Swaziland. Your donation ensures the continued maintenance of the library, a small stipend for the refugee volunteer librarians and keeping a beacon of hope and literacy alive and functioning for hundreds of displaced refugees from all over Africa.
