Gold Class, “Bite Down”
lead singer Adam Curley is sexy standing there in t-shirt and jeans, singing with that rippling deep vibrato. The Aussie band sounds Joy Division-esque with its moody pop/rock melodies. Lucious.
Gold Class released debut album It’s You in September 2015.
Israel Nash, “Strangers”
this reminds me of Neil Young. I know that’s a tough comparison but Nash’s vocals truly have a weathered texture. inspired by psychedelia and Texas landscapes, Nash’s thoughtful songwriting makes this compelling and entrancing.
Israel Nash’s Silver Seasons [Loose/Thirty Tigers] out now.
unexpectedly cool blend of loud and soft, harsh and gentle, rumbling and smooth. a bit post-punk, art rock, garage rock and all indie rock. think Pavement colliding with The Bird and the Bee. The New Orleans trio succeeds in myriad ways.
