Gospel Gossip: Atlantic Blue 7″
I can still remember getting the CD (remember those?) of the debut album Sing Into My Mouth from Gospel Gossip. The crashing waves of fuzzy guitars and Sarah Nienaber’s pretty yet powerful vocals instantly hit the spot for me, even if their sound wasn’t fully realized on those early recordings. After taking a few years away from recorded material (and partaking in a lot of side projects), the group is back with their first batch of new songs since their 2009 Drift EP. The Atlantic Blue 7″ features three songs that find the band picking up right where they left off, creating songs too catchy for shoegaze and too noisy for pop. Time has treated this trio well and it is exciting to hear new material from the band, which hopefully means another EP or LP will be coming sooner before later. In celebration of the new songs (which you can stream below), the band are having a release show tonight at the Turf Club in St. Paul. The bill is incredibly solid from start to finish, with Leisure Birds, Magic Castles and Teenage Moods all setting the table for Gospel Gossip. If you are looking for an example of how great our music scene is, going to this show tonight at the Turf Club would be a good place to start.
