Residency at Hundo Beach: CDEP
Broken Gold features current and former members of The Riverboat Gamblers, however, the layered guitars and stacked pedals are the focal point; they swoop and shimmer then burn out into a wall of fuzz. Ian MacDougall’s voice is reserved and sometimes lost in the mix, which helps to pronounce the sedated melodies and rich textures. Imagine The Replacements and Hüsker Dü informed by post-hardcore. “Let Go” dabbles in Weakerthans moodiness, but with no lyrics included I’m unsure as to if MacDougall is writing poetry like John K. Samson. “Shoulder” is a smidge too sentimental and grandiose, but “Dirty Vodka” is proof that Broken Gold knows how to crush. Just listening to the guitars build a wall of sound brick by brick is enough.  –Sean Arenas (End Sounds, endsounds.com)
