Gold Connections – ‘Popular Fiction’ (album review)

Gold Connections – ‘Popular Fiction’ (album review)

Popular Fiction by Gold Connections Will Marsh – a.k.a. Gold Connections – will in all likelihood be always linked to Car Seat Headrest’s Will Toledo because they are good friends and Toledo produced Marsh’s fantastic debut – and one 2017’s best – EP, Gold Connections. Marsh isn’t the first and won’t be the last person to be linked to a […]

Feral Conservatives – “Twenty-Eight” (video premiere)

Earlier this year, Virginia Beach trio Feral Conservatives released a little gem of an album, Here’s To Almost. To characterize the album would be difficult because you couldn’t pigeon-hole them into any single category. The best way to describe the album –  a collection of mandolin-driven, indie-folk songs infused with plenty of splashes of rock and pop. One track, however, […]
