Album Notes
Say the French (according to Google):

Operating a such gold digger, with the mounting of a pretty nugget, I have very recently the happy one surprised to note that in my sieve three beautiful birds had remained wedged, the Birds Goldens delicious. With "Carrier", this trio originating in California indeed comes to lay a little marvel of Post-Rock'n'roll. "Post" because raising at the same time of Punk for the spirit and Folk for the intimacy of the light melodies and minimalists, with a rhythmic approach borrowed from the magnet and the hip-hop indie. Thus using of samples and beats enivrants raised by low whirling ("Andre The Giant And Cool "Disco music" Man"), been useful by the graying voice of Webster McBride, the Birds Goldens delicious prove to be as disconcerting as any soft drug. And when the beater Hrishikesk Hirway starts to accompany by its soft voice the hypnotic song by the guitarist, the extase is not far: "Sugarbear" and its harmonic rise where the two votes come to intermingle (from 2:25) will make you almost assemble the tears to the eyes (and I do not exaggerate!) One thinks much of the stable Saddle Creek with the listening of this first album, in Cursive for the harmonic dissonances with which the trio has fun, in the "DIGITAL Ash In A DIGITAL Urn" of Bright Eyes for association Electro/Folk. The level is very recorded and one could not thus too advise you quickly to get this gold nugget to you.

Adventure? Yeah!

Best Band Languishing In Complete Obscurity Ever!
I bought this album after hearing a track ("Things Don't Fall Apart")from it on some internet radio station. Upon purchase, I didn't expect much. I really liked the song, but I had never heard of Golden Birds, and, surely, if all their music was as infectious and well-crafted as this one song then they'd easily have garnered at least some notoriety. Well, I was wrong. Perhaps it has something to do with a recent name change (they used to be called "Carrier", hence the album's title), but this has to be the best band languishing in complete obscurity ever. This album is a packet of Pop Rocks and a plunger of Heroin; 10 tracks of addictive, spirited, inspired musical nectar. You'd be a fool not to buy it, tell 10 friends and then start a fansite.


get addicted
I heard "Andre the Giant..." on pandora and couldn't get it out of my head for weeks, so I finally found my way to CDBaby to get the album. And it was definitely worth it. A really unique style of singing and phrasing, addictive drums and basslines and this shruffy shuffly off-key guitar... guess they somehow caught on my long-time Swell-addiction. Go buy!
