Album Review: Gold Motel

Title:  Gold Motel (Big Cartel, Amazon, iTunes, AllMusic)

Gold Motel's self-titled full-length debut is a record dripping with bubblegum indie pop goodness.  Driven by the majestic voice of Greta Morgan Salpeter, Gold Motel moves through moods and pop structures resulting in a sound that is Rilo Kiley meets Ronnie Spector.  The songs are sweet without being sappy, taking the best elements of '60s pop and '00s indie rock/pop resulting in a lush and layered sound.  Fans of She & Him, The Pipettes, Jenny & Johnny, OK SWEETHEART, Rilo Kiley, and '60s pop need to give Gold Motel a listen.  This is great stuff!
