EP Review: 'E.P. III' by Broken Gold

Title:  E.P. III (BandCamp, Amazon, iTunes)
Artist:  Broken Gold (Official, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTubeBandCamp)

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!
