'Grey avalon sun' was made during the summer of 2005 in the Grotto. The infamous 'lost weekend' record found kaiserbilly teetering on an emotional edge. The full, lush sounds were actually the result of a stripped-down recording setup featuring the newly-developed kaiserbilly delay system, synthesizers, and no guitar. This allowed for increased attention to detail in both recording and mixing, and spurred a creative outpouring. So much material was gathered that this was nearly a double album. An eleventh-hour track-purge begat the slimmer (73min) single cd. The remaining tracks were collected as 'archaic machinery,' a remainders ep.
