What Makes Born Gold Such An Intense Glitch-Pop Band To Experience?

(And Why Should You Bother Taking A Listen?)

Songs That Will Jump Out Of Your Pants

TheRealMusician Recommends:

If you want to take marketing your music to another level, then I can't recommend enough John Oszajca's music marketing manifesto. My favorite aspect of his complete program was his stance on email marketing, where he really leverages the that "1000 true fans" philosophy.

His website is a bit hokey (Flaming guitars? Seriously?), but his program really shows independant artists how to get a leg-up on signed artists.

About Born Gold

Born Gold (Previously named "GOBBLE GOBBLE" has one of the most unique live shows you'll ever see. Focusing mainly on the interactive aspect of the show, they definitely thrive in a "small venue" type of concert, where they can be intimate and playful with you.

You can read about my time at their concert by clicking here.

Their intricate glitch-pop is not only overwhelming, but can often be associated with feelings of happiness, joy, and excitement.

I love em!

They also have some hilarious video's that are really quite brilliant!

I would say that Born Gold is almost the definition of Hipster-type music.

Faded/Low-Fi to the max? Check!

Releasing your LP's on actual LP's? Check!

DIY Digital Instruments that no one else "would understand"? Check!

That's pretty much the whole checklist. But not to worry! I had a quick chat with Cecil (the frontman of the band) after the show; he's a really decent guy. Kind and respectful, you can tell he really enjoys his trade.

Not pretentious, and handles compliments well! I like it!

And so will you, so take a listen above.

About The Writer

My name is Andrew Muller. I love creative art, music, television shows, movies, video games, and a good story.

If you had to find me somewhere, you would probably find me down at O'neils home cooking eating an organic sweet-potato bun breakfast sandwich with ham.

Among my friends, it's a "Muller Classic Move" to eat Mcdonald's at 2am because it's cheap and open 24/7. The joke here is that I'm an idiot. 

I play drums, guitar, piano, and I write & perform music for My Goal Is Telepathy. Take a listen to the latest sound here.
