Gold Connections - Popular Fiction LPLabel: EggHunt Records
Gold Connections Will Marsh went to school with Car Seat Headrests Will Toledo at the College Of William & Mary, where Toledo produced and recorded Marshs debut S/T EP last year on Fat Possum records. Through support tours with Car Seat Headrest, opener slots with bands such as The Districts, Futurebirds, Soccer Mommy and even a tour through Europe culminating with a showing at the esteemed Primavera Club festival, Will Marsh & Gold Connections have built a solid foundation for their upcoming full length effort, Popular Fiction.
Popular Fiction spins out from its smooth black centre in wide concentric circles, like rings in a tree. Listen close, and youll hear all the people Will Marsh has ever been. A little kid, only twelve, thrilled beyond measure to be toying with a four-track and a six-string. A Dylan obsessive at seventeen, reeling from heartbreak and wanderlust, and daring, in the tradition of his idol, to put the feelings in song. Awake too early the morning after his birthday party, newly twenty-one, traipsing through a vast void of virgin snow with a guitar strapped firm to his back. Popular Fiction is a steady piece of reassurance, a new circle opening and spinning and slipping quiet to a close. Were thrilled to hear how far hes come. And we can see, with total clarity, just how far he can go.
