Under the Radar Detects Golden Bloom

Today, we've got an exclusive download remix of runaway single "Doomsday Devices." This retooling, by the Athens, Georgia electro-rock threesome Ruby Isle is an auto-Tuned freak show. The remix could easily slot in well with the rest of Kindercore's stable of dance-pop bands. Click Here to Read More..

Pitchfork states Speck Mountain "aims towards the sky"

This subtle ascension seems to come from an injection of soul. As Some Sweet Relief progresses, song structures lean toward the realm of spirituals and blues, and Balabanian's supine purr begins to feel more classic. You won't mistake Speck Mountain for a gospel group, but it's fair to say that, at least during the album's second half, they sound more like Spiritualized than Mazzy Star. Take the phasey organ of the aching "Backslider", which seems ghostwritten by Sonic Boom, or the slow croon of its partner track "Backsliding", whose staircase-climb has a distinct Jason Pierce tint circa "Shine a Light". It all leads to another sharp peak, "Twinlines", whose simple chorus-- "Oh, how long," delivered in a pretty Balabanian moan-- belongs distinctly to this band...there's no law that says mellowness can't reach as high as energy-- especially when, as with Speck Mountain, it's permanently aimed towards the sky.--Marc Masters, Pitchfork Click Here to Read More..

Magnet Magazine is Drawn to Golden Bloom

Magnet Magazine launches the first week of one week exclusive mp3s given to nine music sites leading up to the release of Golden Bloom’s album, Fan the Flames, due out August 18th.

"MAGNET is proud to kick off the Summer of Golden Bloom, mainly because this album is redolent of mid-period Wilco; lead track "E.H.M." sounds like an imaginary b-side to "Outtasite (Outta Mind)" featuring Scott McCaughey and appearing circa Summerteeth instead of Being There."
