Gsstoak – Goleg by Chris

Believe it or not, I’m actually an avid radio listener. After a long day at work (selling Eminem CDs to pre-teen girls at a music store) I was delighted to tune into a glo-fi/shoegaze show on a community station while driving home. Gsstoak‘s Goleg captivated me to the point where I sat in my driveway, refusing to get out of the car until the track had finished.

Luckily I carry a notebook around everywhere I go (which girls tell me is ‘creepy’, but I wouldn’t expect them to understand considering most of the girls I meet at bars are so superficial they don’t have anything in their life worthy of writing down) and I was able to scrawl down Gsstoak‘s name as the radio DJ announced the track ID (a challenge in its own right considering the bizarre spelling).

Goleg reminds me of Animal Collective, it’s got that psych-pop/electronic-folk sound. On the first listen, it brought a smile to my face- and reminded me of the pleasures of finding new music (especially after listening to Kylie Minogue’s live album about 50 times through at the music shop). I feel as if it’s like a good book that I don’t want to ruin for you by describing- so just skip to the download!

Also worth mentioning is his bandcamp page where he has an entire album called Mt. Internet available for free! The album as a whole is rich with a lo-fi electronic folk sound which is really quite unique.
