Somehow I completely spaced on this one. Way back in February Beau Cole aka Raindeer aka 1/2 of Lands & Peoples premiered his first endeavor as Zu Shapes with the hypnotic song “Olivia”. Later Friends Records sent over the promo for his full release Merigold. I loved it. I planned on posting on it. But…you know how it is. Well after seeing him and Caleb (Lands & Peoples) rock the Metro Gallery a few weeks back, I decided to blast Merigold once more and was quickly reminded how sweet this 4 song release was. Melodic, subtle, almost spring-like, perhaps even “drunken surf pop bliss“. Seriously – go get it for $5 on cassete or whatever you want digitally.
