GOLDEN BOYS "Dirty Fingernails" LP
german pressing with an alternate tooth -pulling mix. Already 3rd album on ALIEN SNATCH! of these Austins´favorite super rock band. What started with some kind of release party & eating for "No Reservations" with Anthony Bourdain in March 2012 turned into two US tours this year ending with GONER FEST 9 in Memphis.
"perhaps the first of their full-lengths to accurately transfer the multi-dimensional insanity of their live shows to a home/car/jogging format" (12XU - Gerard Cosloy)
"album of the year" (GONER RECORDS - Eric)
"This record presents them as kind of like a less refined, more musically raw answer to modern garage rock elder statesmen REIGNING SOUND, while at the same time giving a nod to the hooky pop of ELVIS COSTELLO And The ATTRACTIONS...Dirty Fingernails is easily on my top five records of 2012 so far, and I predict it’s there to stay. It’s an instant classic and gets my highest recommendation" (Razorcake)
"Punk in spirit, rifling through dirty R&B, outlaw country, and vintage pop, Austin's the Golden Boys embody every great idiom of rock & roll." (Austin Chronicle)
GOLDEN BOYS "Electric Wolfman" LP/CD
The newest album from Austin, TX rockers, GOLDEN BOYS, is a shambolic
collection of organ driven moonshine howling (Electric Wolfmen), folky
pop nuggets (Old Man´s Coat, Rock With Me Forever), topping accoustic
anthems about dada and dogs.The GOLDEN BOYS drive off-road and cheer over
to you before apparently getting stuck at the next intersection. The moment
you´re about to say goodbye and smile bout the odd situation they´re
back with another pushing rocker (Kontroll Girls, Goddamn I love the ocean).
"Electric Wolfman" is a blueprint lesson in writing a party
record of slow rockers and soulful wailers.
