If this track by Dirty Gold doesn’t get you excited for summer, I don’t know what will. The song is called California Sunrise and is off of their upcoming Roar EP which comes out next Tuesday on Autumn Tone records. I came across this trio from San Diego really randomly, as my Twitter buddy Tim Ragan sent me a link to this video, but then I realized they were on my buddy Justin’s label, whom you might know as the guy who runs Aquarium Drunkard.
Anyhow, these guys make a kind of afro-beat, Vampire Weekend surf rock that’s totally fitting for the weather in Los Angeles right now. Justin sent me a preview copy of Roar and I can tell you right now that this album is 100% going to be on repeat this summer. It’s timeless, it’s filled with sunlight and I bet you’re going to love it.
