10/18/2012 - G. W. Hill Set to Release Déjà Vu

The Compilation Album Will Be Available October 22nd


October 18th, 2012, Rockford, ILDéjà Vu will be released by G.W. Hill on October 22nd. Initially the disc will be available only at CreateSpace in physical format. However, shortly after release it will be available at in both physical and digital formats. The album features a cross-section of music from Hill’s other releases and three songs not available anywhere else.


In a review that will be published in the upcoming issue of Music Street Journal Larry Toering said of the album, “I'm rather new to the music of G. W. (aka Gary) Hill, so when it came down to reviewing his work I was a bit reluctant because of a lack of knowing what the concepts of the content are all about, and just how to grasp and embrace them without that element going into it. What I found was a much more comprehensive art in his music than I thought might be the case. The majority of this was done on basic equipment in the 80s, recorded on cassette tapes and then later, of course transferred to digital format. This is a compilation entitled ‘Déjà Vu’ and includes a title track as a newer creation, so it does contain newer material. In addition, it contains an instrumental version of the recently released digital single ‘The Music of Erich Zann.’ There’s a review of that original version elsewhere at MSJ.  In addition you can find reviews of the rest of Hill’s albums and an interview at the site.  The music can be not only described as “abstract,” but very artistically spooky and rather interesting with its primitive but intelligent charm that translates well from the 80s to the current musical landscape one way or another. It's all very compelling and captivating to a degree I never expected when I finally had a chance to enjoy it, after reading about it. This collection of tunes are both uplifting and brooding at the same time, as well as artistically easy to appreciate.”


G. W. Hill began playing music at age 15, starting on bass guitar. In addition to performing music, Hill is a published author (The Strange Sound of Cthulhu: Music Inspired by the Writing of H. P. Lovecraft and Strange Realities: The Collected Short Stories of Gary Hill) and a music journalist.


G. W. Hill lives in the Rockford, Illinois area and is currently working on a new album (in the very early stages). There are several guests lined up for the new recording, but they are all top secret at this point (although one famous actor has submitted a spoken part to be used). Hill also publishes Music Street Journal and writes for numerous other outlets. Déjà Vu will first be available only at, but will show up at within the next week or so.
