Milly at the Sinkhole
Milly (Los Angelas)
Wish Goes On soundtracks the (re)birth of a band called Milly. Itis something new emerging from something old; something oldfrom something older, made new again. In 2019, Milly hit the road with labelmates and fellow fans of fuzz, Swervedriver. At the time, their lineup was rotating consistently as Brendan Dyer, Millys principle songwriter, searched for permanence in the form of a live band. It was on this tour that something clicked for Dyer, who recalls the feeling as nothing short of cosmic. He remembers thinking one day, simply, This is the band, and so it was. Spencer Light on guitar, Yarden Erez onbass, and Zach CapittiFenton on drums, with Dyer playing guitar and singing the songs.The dynamic that burst into existence on this tour only deepened in the following months. So much of it for me are those in-between moments, Dyer says about the bands blossoming friendships, driving in the car listening to music, or being on break from rehearsal getting something to eat from Lassens. Dyer would bring sketches of songs to the group,most of which hed already been developing for years. This release marks the transition from Milly as a solo project to Millyas something more unified, Dyer explains. CapittiFenton, Erez,and Light were invited to dissect and rework his demos, a process that continued right up until the time they found themselves in rural Colorado actively recording Wish Goes On with Gleemers Corey Coffman. Coffman, who engineered and produced, also became involved in the songwriting process at this point, offering ideas the band would take home and play with before returning to the studio the next day.The result is five songs which complement one another artfully.By the time Dyer sings, But its different now, feels like the same old town but I know its not on the EPs second track,

Denial, it is not only a hometown that has disappeared inchange, but also the sordid illusion of US supremacy as it is incessantly propagandized, especially to children  a notion which opener Star Spangled Banner openly unsettles. Dyer wrote Denial and the three songs that follow at around the same time in his life, with Star Spangled Banner coming significantly later, sometime after Millys formative tour in 2019. There is something to be said about these conversations across time, the album receding in a sense into the past even as one advances through it. Maybe it has something to do with the idea that longing, wishful thinking, and hope are always reaching both backwards and forwards. Maybe when Dyer sings that he cant get past denial, hes referring in a sense to the denial of anything but the present moment. Maybe, in the way of Alan Watts,Wish Goes On furthers the idea that The only way to make sense out of change is to plug into it, move with it,and join the dance. Dyer describes something to this effect when he says hes been trying to keep my head down and follow my path, knowing things will work out. In the same conversation, he openly acknowledges that even if thats not true, it still feels helpful, which is to say, of course, Wish GoesOn.
