The Golden Shore

Album Review: The Golden Shore by We Are The West (7/10)

You can’t judge a band by its venues––or maybe you can when the trippy, unexpected performance spaces that dominate We Are The West’s packed schedule are as eclectic and unique as their offbeat, trippy but ultimately engaging brand of symphonic experimental folk. Led by vocalist-guitarist Brett Hool and bassist John Kibler, the collective blends melodically and rhythmically inviting singer-songwriter material with out-there textures fashioned with drums, percussion, vocal harmonies, woodwinds, strings, brass, accordion and pump organ. The Golden Shore is a long, strange––but can’t take your ears off them––incredible trip.
