Artist: Broken Gold (Official, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, BandCamp)
Broken Gold is a band that perfectly harnesses the power, essence, and sensibilities of the college, indie, and punk rock of the late 1980s and early 1990s creating a sound that is equal parts modern, nostalgic, and timeless. The Austin, TX band's latest effort E.P. III is a stunning and cathartic release of anxiety and desperation via tight hooks, great melodies, and incredible pop sensibility resulting in a hopeful reassurance that only great rock 'n' roll can give. This record takes everything that was great about the band's previous EP, the awesome Turning Blue, and kicks it up a good 10 notches. If you've never heard Broken Gold, the two cover's on this EP serve as an great way to describe/envision their music: Guided By Voices "Motor Away" and the Ramones "Howling at the Moon." Mix the vibe of those songs together and you'll have a pretty good idea of what you get with Broken Gold. Sounds pretty good right? It is!
