“Hello, Hi” is expansively rendered by Ty, mostly by himself, at home. The isolation suits the songs: you´re only ever as “at home” as you are with yourself in the mirror. Ty´s acoustic and electric guitars and vocal harmonies layer self upon self, forming a spiny backbone for the album. Textures at once gentle and dissonant root the songs as they make their move: melodic arcs convulsing in doubt and bliss and rage. Busting out of the endless gridlock into open space, these spirits pass on through.
