Goldenboy “Starlight Town” free download at Buzz Bands LA

Get the exclusive free download of the new Goldenboy track “Starlight Town” from their feature on Buzz Bands LA.

Goldenboy’s lush and warm but melancholic indie-pop has been a work in progress ever since singer-guitarist Shon Sullivan embarked on the project while playing in Elliott Smith’s band over a decade ago. Through four albums, Sullivan and percussionist Bryan Bos (now joined in the quartet by Nicole Verhamme and Katy Stone) have put the rock in soft-rock, the frontman’s plaintive delivery often belying the emotional weight of his songs about love and loss. Goldenboy’s latest album “The New Familiar” (due Nov. 20 on Eeenie Meenie Records) is a beautifully orchestrated collection that will feel good to fans of bands such as Eels (with whom Sullivan also played) and Earlimart. The new album comes a month after the 10th-anniversary vinyl reissue of Goldenboy’s debut, “Blue Swan Orchestra,” remastered with bonus tracks. That 2002 album features Smith’s vocals on the song “Summertime,” a song Sullivan wrote while on tour with the late songwriter. - Kevin Bronson
