about

Gold & Shadow is the music of Dane Letourneau, Jesse Janzen, and Raymond Gourlay. "Onero" is perhaps the best representation of our vision so far, a whirlwind of color, noise, and melody, a document of loss, hurt, and hope.

All songs © 2010 Dane Letourneau. "Onero" was performed by Gold & Shadow and recorded, produced, and mixed by Dane Letourneau during the winter of 2010/2011. Mastering was done by Jordan Stringer at Cabin Fever Studios (cabinfeverstudios.ca).

All photography © Dane Letourneau, except inside sleeve photo by Cassandra Smith @ Yeosmith Studio (yeosmith.com). Package design by Dane Letourneau.

Thanks goes out to everyone who has supported the late-night rehearsals and made the effort to come out and see us perform... and thanks to the listener for spending your hard-earned cash on this disc, we hope you enjoy what you'll find within.

Track Name: Station
In the station to your parents house
I know everything about you now
The muffled and apparent loss
Is the cause of this and more from now

One day we will stand apart
and on and on and on...

In the station, to your parents house
I know everything about you now

Well we crawled against the half-light
Where we caught the early train
And in the grinning gaze of the city
We stood again

And it left nothing but ashes
But the smoke was seen by all
And in the hidden depths of a city
The first tears fell

Forgo all of this, you broke your vow
I know everything about you now
I know everything about you now
Track Name: Wings for Marigold
You walk till you fall asleep
And they go on and on

They ask for
beg for
not the animal thing
the birds that you bring

You walk till you fall asleep
You’re not the only one

We found you
In the city sewer
with a bottle and
your bottleblue friend

You walk till you fall asleep
And they go on and on
(these wings for Marigold)
Track Name: Builders
We are the builders of this world
We have nothing but materials

Thought by thought our city rise to meet
Greatest outlines of the Romans and the Greeks

...our city rise to meet
Greatest outlines of the Romans and the Greeks

Sang out loud: “boots and clay”
From scaffolding we paint and cry:
“the greatest colors dug from the mind”

We are the builders of this world
Track Name: A Friend, a Frame
Calendar days are here
Counting the end has been a nervous chore
Breaking those last few minute stares

Your gun is right by your side and you call her unbelievable fate
My wings are full and effects will unlace this silly order I can’t take

Last minute reveries
Convince even skeptical crowds
We’ve lost at least
a friend, a frame,

an unbelievable sustain
The balance is lost and now we find dismay

Your gun is right by your side and you call her unbelievable fate
My wings are full and effects will unlace this silly order I can’t take
You’ve stood, a fountain of mirth, a man of unbelievable faith
We’ve learned to savor the time, to bask in the warm shallows of your wake

oh God
A friend, a frame
An unbelievable sustain
Track Name: Creature Down
While I stand watch, I take watch
It’s your small bed of ashes
Compliance has followed from sorrow
Mechanical & null

Heavy lifting, please,
This could never be

While I stand watch, idle by,
count the freckles on your cheek

Why the sheer weight of a mattress & a boxspring?
Now we are void of the charge that set us flying out

You lay your head back down, these mentally matching ills
You lay your head back down
You gave up nothing but your crown, for these mentally matching ills
You lay your head back down
