i want to thank rich from cable and tweed to bringing this group of atlantians/decaturites, warm in the wake, to my attention. they just released an ep entitled gold dust trail and if you are in the market for sounds that would fit ever so nicely with a beer, a backporch and warm summer evening then look no further than warm in the wake. this is sunny pop for those that may not necessarily dig sunny pop, yours truly included. “golden inhibition destroyer” is a brilliant gem that is part yankee hotel foxtrot era wilco crossed with the rollicking piano made popular, most notably, by 70′s southern rock outfits. this by no means is a southern rock record, i want to make that clear, but those influences are most definitely present. some of the guitar/production work reminds me of daniel lanois and/or t bone burnett, and some of their extended instrumental interludes are earily reminiscent of yo la tengo.
they are playing in atlanta this fine evening @ smiths olde bar starting @ 9 p.m. – i wish i could go. check out their myspace page for tourdates and stuff
gold dust trail can be purchased at itunes or your local “indie” record shop
