American Music Club - The Golden Age Number 4 - 2008

American Music Club - The Golden Age

Mark Eitzel reformed American Music Club with a new rhythm section and the inscrutable Vudi along for the ride. The band fashioned a lighter than sound than their churning bruised glory. Laurel Cannon sunshine anchored by Eitzel sonorous crumpled vocals and his weary romantic Bukowski world view. The Golden Age soared upwards on harmonies of All The Lost Souls of San Francisco and the astounding bleak beauty of Windows of The World. Vudi bleeds his guitar grime into the mix and Eitzel opens his heart and our eyes as only he can.
