Hello fellow Sounds!!!! If you were wondering why you haven’t seen us out playing in a while, it is because of this. I’ve been working on a short film. Discover Kasper. Go to the link and see the trailer! http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/887534482/discover-kasper?ref=recently_launched
For a limited time we are offering “Fireflies” and “We’re Not Alone” for FREE download at reverbnation.
I had a good couple days shooting this past weekend for a short film I am in (written and directed by Seth Christian.) The Golden Sounds music is also going to be used in the film. We have a couple more big shoots left before editing. The photo above is a still from one of the scenes. Stay tuned for the film’s Facebook and website within the next month. And if you haven’t yet, go download “Don’t Close Your Eyes” FREE for a limited time. Tell your friends to go get the new record and we’ll see ya at the shows soon!
The Golden Sounds will perform 2 short sets throughout the evening.
For one night only all will be illuminated as BB King’s is transformed into a glowing pop-up gallery lit only by self-lit or black-lit art and a variety of equally–and literally–brilliant live entertainment. Lighting up this year’s marquee are DJ Sooper Grover, performers Grupo Balança Capoeira (Brazillian Martial Arts/Dance group), the band The Golden Sounds and Glowing Spinning Poi. Body painting stylings of Michelle Body Painter round out the lineup with distinctive sparkle and flash. The evening will be hosted by the radiant Shannon Million, Nashville Correspondent for PinUp America Magazine.
Here is a great review of the new record from The Nashville Scene:
Listening to the new Golden Sounds album The Fireflies Were Right, you get the impression life has gotten much better in the past five years for Todd Evans, the man behind the Golden curtain. On 2007’s Lo-Fi Sounds for a Hi-Fi Heart, Evans sounded broken and forlorn, a man trying to pick up the pieces of a shattered relationship. Interestingly, about eight months after the release of that album, Evans got married, and his music today has a much more life-affirming lilt to it. That’s not to suggest Firefliesis the feel-good album of the year: “All the androids cry / All the birds just stare / Their rusty hearts collide with angry bears,” he sings on opening track “Don’t Close Your Eyes.” But on “Firefly,” he sings, “The fireflies were right / There’s a bigger fight / Put your hands in mine and start believing.” On “We’re Not Alone,” Evans’ music recalls the arty, ambient strains of Spiritualized and Radiohead. Another highlight is “Lovers and Dreamers,” a moody, psychedelic country waltz: “We don’t need anything but lovers and dreamers,” he sings, and it seems he’s found both.
