Gold - Gold (2012)

Like the last tape we posted, this one is another study in contrasts. When she's not playing bass in the noisy Shematomas, Rena Kozak is playing more subtle guitar pop with Gold, alongside Kaelen Ohm, Extra Happy Ghost!!! Matt Swann and the ever-present boy genius, Chris Dadge.

There's been a bit of (justified) hype around this band, as it was the project that Women's Chris Reimer was involved with when he passed away earlier this year. This is great summertime music - it reminds us in places of the Smiths and New Zealand's the Bats.

We highly recommend downloading "Losing Your Hair" from the band's bandcamp.
