This album is a collaboration between producer Jody Lloyd and some of the best New Zealand songwriters and musicians of their time... recorded in 2004/2005
'If Jody Lloyd lived in Wellington and this album had been recorded at The Lab, this disc might well be hailed as a work of genius by all and sundry. However, with Lloyd being a Mainlander and Trillion's album being created in the small but no doubt perfectly formed 'She'll Be Right' studio. it will only be the lucky few that will chance upon 'The Gray Between Shadow and Shade' and realise this album is no monotone creation but a sparkling jewel. Lloyd created the bedrock for the Trillion sound but a host of guest stars - including Jeremy Taylor, Flip Grater, Demarnia Lloyd and Lindon Puffin - have helped fles out the sound. Trillion uses a grab bag of sounds (few local records released this year will feature both bouzouki and marimba) to create an appetising kalidescope of sound. Hardcore indie one moment, danceable the next and even on occasion sounding ethnic. Trillion has a hard sound to describe, but the sum of all its parts adds up to a juicy whole. 4.5 stars.
