Gold – Losing Your Hair

Gold are easily one of the most exciting bands in this bold, cold province where the gold is black and comes from the ground up—this gold isn’t much different. Discover back-bending twinkle pop jams bubbling with the crystalline voices of Kaelen Ohm and Rena Kozak, supported by Calgary stars Matt Swann (Extra Happy Ghost!!!, Astral Swans) and Chris Dadge (everything). These recordings come to us from the always stellar Mammoth Cave Recording Co., however their arrival is marked by mourning. I have allowed the band to explain in their own words (below). Copping this 7″ is a good idea. Support this five star outfit so you can tell your kids you were there from the start. Story:

“We started recording these songs in January 2012 with the intention of spending a couple of months demoing all of our material in preparation for a full length studio album. Our drummer, Chris Reimer, had brought over his beloved 4trk cassette deck, small mixer, and collection of microphones and we spent some days and nights together playing with gear. On February 19th 2012 Chris passed away unexpectedly in his sleep of a previously undiagnosed heart condition. This EP is an archive of the four songs we had completed with Chris on the drums and the console, and is dedicated with so much love to him and the inspiration he filled us with.”
