I'm seeing daylight underground I'm hearing all the sounds in bits and pieces How about Swimming up on the ceilings Switching between all the feelings Downside upside upside down I'm seeing daylight underground I'm hearing all the sounds in bits and pieces How about Swimming up on the ceilings Switching between all the feelings I'm seeing daylight underground

You made me love you Saving my love for you

I want to love you, that I’d die for you Give me, give me It’s just that I do what I do When I tell you

coffee color like the sunlight on the hardwood floor half naked at the table 3 sips you tap my window honey don’t be shy let yourself in the front door I’ve been waiting for a while the neighbors whisper down the street but pay no mind I am finding that people only see what they want to see and you’re here now so we can take this anywhere there’s something bout atlantic ocean air lately I’ve got nowhere else to be golden hour I’m not placing porcelain doves in higher spaces of blue I’d rather miss you when I’m gone lonely is a wall of mazes dead end halls we know aren’t built for two I’d rather miss you when I’m gone do we dare head down to memory lane a taste of bittersweet some days I feel so stuck in time and they’re waving looking like a modern picture if we got everything we wished for but we’re all just passing by say the word with you I’d do anything maybe I’m a fool pretending but people want to be what they want to be and we’re here now so we should throw away our cares I need all the time you’ll share because it won’t be too long before you leave golden hour I’m not placing porcelain doves in higher spaces of blue I’d rather miss you when I’m gone lonely is a wall of mazes dead end halls we know we weren’t built for two I’d rather miss you when I’m gone

So we’re steady on the mileage Not a dream, it’s just happening You could take me to the lion’s den But I’d rearrange everything You had to show me how to jump in, let go Make something good of it But we never got the chance We go around again oh ho You shut me down like a renegade Couldn’t help it, now you’re long gone Show me love, another place for it Throw the rest out the back door We’re dogging on a big bone 3D under micro That’s loving in a fishbowl You had to show me how to jump in But we never got the chance We go around again oh ho You shut me down like a renegade Couldn’t help it, now you’re long gone Show me love, another place for it We go around again oh ho You shut me down like a renegade Couldn’t help it, now you’re long gone Show me love, another place for it

I long to recall What the birdsong said to me Dreams crumble and fall Just like dead leaves in the breeze Long lost folly catcher Long lost folly catcher Long lost folly catcher Long… I long to recall What the ocean said to me Hearts stumble and crawl When they’re washed up, up on a cold beach Long lost folly catcher Long lost folly catcher Long lost folly catcher Long… I long to return To the old days, feeling blue Aches quiver and burn Just like starlight on a moon How, how can it be That the world stops spinning ‘round? I shiver and learn That my head’s back in the clouds
13.
Fever moon shake shared on the fire escape Smoke light problem mood right come on in Let’s go around them crosswalk intentions

about

“Uncle Skeleton is a way for me to express whatever weird thing I’m going through,” explains Ross Wariner, the artist behind Golden Hour, of his musical output.

Wariner, a composer for TV and video games, has been releasing music under the pseudonym Uncle Skeleton for 12 years. Creative freedom can be hard to come by when answering to clientele with a lot of overhead, and, when the pandemic hit, his tendency to tinker took off. Wariner, a multi-instrumentalist, composed, produced, arranged and mixed most of the album from his tiny home-studio in Brooklyn.

Golden Hour finds Wariner eschewing his dependency on vocal samples for more real world collaborations, a conscious effort to bring more emotion to the album. “There were a few songs where I went as far as I could on my own, but I knew they were missing that special something,” he says of the collaborations; adding, “Emotion adds so much to a track, and with the themes of some of these songs, there could be no better addition than real humans. Besides, you can’t beat collaboration.”

That desire to bring in an extra layer of emotion resulted in a number of standout performances on Golden Hour; including the melancholy dreamy vocals of Italians Do It Better mainstay Glüme on “LN”, the hauntingly forlorn Rylie DeGarmo on “Heavy Damask”, the sweepingly yearning performance from Ellery Bonham on “Porcelain,” and the casually coy crooning of longtime collaborator Cody Uhler on “Deveraux.” Cory Wong of Vulfpeck also lends his signature guitar sound to standout single “Double Dip,” a different kind of collaboration but a noteworthy one along the albums journey.

Finding an opportunity to pause the incessant streams of social media or the ever-increasing responsibilities of work-from-home life is a rare thing these days. Golden Hour provides the opportunity to step back for an hour and consider the impact of the changing world, both on a planetary scale and on the ever-important personal scale.
