Golden Suits - 'Golden Suits'

Crunching rhythms, subtle brass, and tunes as intoxicating as a blood transfusion from Pete Doherty

Golden Suits - 'Golden Suits'

Album Info

  • Label: Yep Roc
8 / 10 The two watches on the sleeve represent the one-year period Fred Nicolaus spent recording his solo debut album as Golden Suits – one bought at the start, one at the end. Since Daniel Rossen switched his focus from their joint project Department Of Eagles to join Grizzly Bear in 2004, Nicolaus has played the dutiful wallflower, until re-emerging with this alt.folk wonder. Crunching rhythms, subtle brass, and tunes as intoxicating as a blood transfusion from Pete Doherty combine as he tells the tale of a disastrous year full of rat infestations, romantic strife and weight loss. Here’s its golden lining.
