Gold StarThis isn’t a new song, but rather a re-release and one that deserves every music fan’s attention. For the past three years, Vienna-born, Los Angeles-resident Marlon Rabenreither has been creating dark but captivating folk with some of the most heart-pounding lyrics. His talents were noticed early on by the great Lucinda Williams, who encouraged Rabenreither to continue writing as well as to open for her on some shows.

Under the moniker Gold Star, Rabenreither released his critically acclaimed LP, Dark Days, last year. However, it got all started in 2012 when he released Gold Star – EP. On that terrific record is “Against the Wall” that is a minimalist but haunting folk tune. It recalls the excellence of another contemporary folk artist, Zachary Cale.

The entire EP can be heard on SoundCloud or purchase it on iTunes. You can also hear Dark Days in its entirety on SoundCloud or stream it below.

“Against the Wall” is one of twenty singles on the June 5th Edition of The Weekend Showcase, a weekly playlist of new music from around the globe.
