Limited Edition Cassette coming June 3, 2014 on Hope For The Tape Deck!!! 

Dudes, hold on to yer butts. The new Gold-Bears album is primed and ready, and your earholes aren’t ready for the assault that will soon be upon them. 

The first single, “For You”, debuted yesterday, and Pitchfork, C
onsequence of Sound, Their Bated Breath, and Prefix, among others have all had nice some really things to say so far. The single is streaming on Soundcloud now.

Podcasts For Moderns / Episode .003 {PODCAST/MIXTAPE}

Yep, I’m back again folks but this time I’ve come armed with a bunch of ladies singin’ and playin’ tunes. There isn’t nearly as much of a gap between male dominance and female obscurity as in years past but it still exists on some levels. But really, the main impetus behind the theme was an abundance of lady tunes in my giant for-future-mixtapes-and-podcasts folder - so I rallied up a quality batch. If you choose to listen to the podcast you’ll notice I sound a little beat up - I’m still recovering from last weekend’s bachelor party. That’s right ladies, 2 more months until I take up arms with the girl of my dreams.

Eyes on this wonderful interview that covers the past, present and future of Eric and Kid Icarus!

Surprised and elated there were still copies of this LP available. I heard several tracks on other folks’ mixtapes but finally got around to indulging in the entire album and it’s a ‘peach’. Definitely pushed something else out of my top 10 from ‘13. Grip the LP here before regret sets in.
