Following a short-lived dalliance with Virgin (left in the cold when new A&R moguls kicked in) and now back on their own label, Goldrush continue to make great music, this seven-track EP more a halfway house between live edge and meticulous studio output. Though Robin Bennett’s tremulous delivery remains a crowning glory, the guitars have a ferocity previously only hinted at (see Flaming Lips producer Dave Fridmann’s remix of “Let You Down” and tour favourite “Counting Song”), with the searing “Intro” suggesting an imminent romp through “I’m Waiting For The Man”.
