The Download: New Gomez MP3
After 11 years and a little help from TV hospital dramas like Grey’s Anatomy and House, Gomez finally found a mass audience here in the US. The UK act recently wrapped up its sixth LP. From the one-sheet:
“As ever, a wide range of styles is incorporated into Gomez’s matchless musical brew. Flavors of Delta blues, psychedelia, and Krautrock all come into play, resulting in a musically mischievous and remarkably forward-thinking collection. In short, A New Tide is Gomez at their inimitable, incomparable best.
A New Tide also sees Gomez accompanied by a number of illustrious guest musicians, including vocalist Amy Milan (of Stars/Broken Social Scene fame), bassist Josh Abrams (The Roots, Sam Prekop, Godspeed You Black Emperor!), cellist Oliver Krauss (David Gray, Paul Weller, Beth Orton), and multi-instrumentalist Stuart Bogie of Brooklyn’s world renowned Antibalas Afrobeat Orchestra.”
The album hits stores March 31st on ATO Records. Exchange your email address for a free MP3 of the first single, “Airstream Driver,” at the Gomez website.
