well, if you’ve come this far, you’ve come for a reason. whether to find out more about the storied band this website is devoted to — THE WILES — or to inquire about their latest release, the double-album, GEMINI RAGE, is irrelevant, because you can do both (find out about the band, and find out about the album) by ordering the band’s newest album, here:

and you can even listen to some of the tracks that are posted on these soundcloud pages:

so, until we meet again, happy trails and thanks for visiting the site and keeping up with the band.

holy moly! while we wait with great anticipation for the release of “GEMINI RAGE” to come sometime this spring, the band has decided to go wikileaks on the whole dils, leaking a few choice tracks to whet your appetite and hopefully attract the attention of the washington post. of the songs you’ll see below, “smell” is about how gil doesn’t have a sense of smell and is written with the perspicacity that only a loving and considerate friend could show unto a friend in such circumstances in trying to explain something so commonplace and yet enigmatic… “gina” is about tim’s old roommate’s lolita archetype, who managed to capture his heart and mind for a period of time, but thankfully turned out to be the lock ness monster before any more damage was done… and finally “darryl strawberry” is about a trip to the renaissance fair with the whole family. hope you brahs dig it, and remember to stay tuned in, turned on, and drop by for further developments.
