'Tis the Season:
Criminally underrated and under heard band featuring members of Trans Am, Six Finger Satellite, and The Mars Volta. Golden serve up high quality instrumental music that carries the basic blueprint for 90's styled post-rock. I think the term "angular" comes to mind. But this talented group finds a unique style and voice by utilizing restraint and a sort of heads-up respect for the groove of a song. There are many dips into psuedo-jazzy lounge territory on there records and the result that is both confusing and amazing...and maybe cheesy(?). But I think that's part of the appeal of Golden; they seem like nice-hearted guys who know that posing and looking cool can only go so far, so why not have a good time while kicking out some impressive music!
This is their first full-length album and was released on the Trans Solar record label out of Germany.
