Why haven’t I been properly listening to Gold Star until tonight? Gold Star aka L.A. based country-folk musician Marlon Rabenreither is a pretty damn good songwriter and vocalist. His latest album Big Blue came out on 24th of March on Autumn Tone Records and I’m thoroughly enjoying it at the moment. Lucinda Williams also seem to think highly of him and his songs and well who am I to disagree with Lucinda. This is rather brilliant west coast americana. I need to buy either a download or physical copy asap and let myself sink deeper into the songs of Gold Star. Here’s a couple of songs that first caught my ear, but any of the album cuts would do equally well.
