Golden Animals Hear Eye Go on LP
The Reverberation Appreciation Society is excited to release Brooklyn desert-psych duo Golden Animals’ Here Eye Go, the Kickstarter-funded follow-up to their 2008 debut Free Your Mind and Win a Pony.
Dividing their time between the extremes of Brooklyn and the California desert since their 2006 inception, longtime friends Tommy Eisner (vocals/guitar) and Linda Beecroft (drums/backing vocals) construct tales of love, friendship and seclusion while keeping their sound simultaneously energetic and meditative. They view their two home bases as complementary influences, shaping their sound equally but very differently.
Golden Animals’ commitment to the fruits of their labor is impressive - the band recorded an entire LP in a California cabin, only to scrap it upon finding that limitations on their recording process diminished the power of the tracks. That rigid commitment to their work is readily apparent throughout Here Eye Go's ten tracks - they're exactly what they need to be, full of psych-garage energy and devoid of filler.
Despite its full-bodied sound, no bass guitars or organs were used in the record’s creation - it’s all drums and guitars. Hear Eye Go was recorded by Matt Boynton (MGMT, Kurt Vile) at Vacation Island Recordings, and by the band themselves at their own studio. Joe LaPorta (Foo Fighters, Beach House) mastered the album at The Lodge.
