Comedown Sunday : Morgan's Bay

Photo by Drew Innis

Goldroom is Josh Legg, one-half of the Binary Records/Management company, the fabulous LA band NightWaves, and a good friend. Over the past year Josh found himself recording a good deal of material that didn't quite 'fit' with the NightWaves vibe. Wanting to give the songs their time in the sun, the side project Goldroom was born. His timing couldn't be more perfect, as his beachy electro tracks are the perfect accompaniment to lazy hazy summer days with a drink in your hand and a girl (or guy) on your mind. It's so tropical I almost want to venture to say it reminds me of Jimmy Buffet… but without the campiness. Jimmy Buffet is annoying; Goldroom is very very good. Morgan's Bay in particular is the perfect Comedown Sunday tune, with breezy guitars and a jiving drums. And if you're really in the mood for some chillout tunes, check out Goldroom's first Mixtape. It's entitled Verano, which apparently means summer in Spanish (thank you anonymous commenter!), but I think it really translates best to "put this on, pop a xanax, get a mojito, and ruminate a bit."

Download Morgan's Bay and the Mixtape below, and be sure to Like Goldroom on Facebook to stay updated on future releases and shows.
