Golden Gurls

  • Golden Gurls

Baltimore’s fuzzed-out and shogazey Golden Gurls formed at the tail-end of 2009 and, like another shoegazey band one could mention, are not the speediest band at completing albums. Thankfully, they’ve done it now. Siting Dinosaur Jr, Pavement, Seam, The Swirlies, and Versus as influences, their debut album ‘Typo Magic’ certainly utilizes washes of oblique noise, hazes through songs about the hum-drum banalities of existence and reconstitutes them with epic distortion bling. Early 90’s tone and catchy as hell.

“Earlier this year Baltimore-based indie upstarts Golden Gurls seemed to drop out of the sky like a house onto a witch, sporting an inexplicably well-conceived and awesome debut long-player” Clicky Clicky

“Golden Gurls employ alternately snarling and whispering guitars to articulate well-developed melodies and to overdrive soaring crescendos; it’s the attack of Dinosaur Jr. paired with the pop sensibility of Normal Years-era Built To Spill.”Clicky Clicky

“This MD-based band combine shoegaze in a Pains of Being Pure at Heart way with an indie punk sound reminiscent of Sebadoh or Dino Jr. I even hear some Afghan Whigs on some of their groovier songs.” Best of 2012, Temple of The Blogs

“Daydream Nation”-era Sonic Youth in there particularly in the guitar sound and understated vocals. Like I said anything that takes me back to my teenage years and going to see some of the aforementioned bands is always going to peek my interest.” Collective-Zine

“Catchy, filled with memorable vocal and guitar hooks, and dazzling fuzzy tone, Typo Magic, their full length debut is a highly enjoyable and infinitely repeatable record.” Best of 2012, Exploding In Sound
