The Streets | Gold Streets

The Streets new album was announced along with the first single, "When You Wasn't Famous". I'm not very fond of the song, but maybe the rest of the album will be better. I have to admit I'm not a huge fan, but do enjoy some of The Streets' work.

Now for another Streets, Gold Streets. This band is in an entirely different genre, but I am enjoying what I am hearing. They are a Rock/Indie/Psychedelic band , but not as much as you could expect. They are much more mellow playing smooth moody songs, yet still entertaining.

Hailing from New York,
Gold Streets have recently self released their first Ep and is available directly from the band. Not much else is told about Gold Streets, but you can also stream another song and learn some more on their Myspace. This excerpt about the Ep is much more profound than anything I could ever say.

Sonically rich with throbbing basslines and pulsing waves of guitar, Gold Streets' new EP, "Red," also evokes fellow New York bands such as Straylight Run and stellastarr*. Opening track "Red" draws the listener in with soaring guitar howls and drums that crash overhead. The album’s centerpiece, "Opposition," begins with a slow confession and builds to a soaring, multi-layered climax. "Right Now" opens with a stoic bassline, adding elements and effects one by one, like a jigsaw puzzle taking shape, only to disassemble itself at the end. A mere five songs is too short to fully experience all that Gold Streets has to offer, but with any luck, a full length follow up isn't too far behind.
