GO WHITE BRONCO: Population: Ghost Town: LP

This album is sublimely beautiful. There are few bands with the ability to be both uplifting and calming at the same time, but that’s what Go White Bronco gives me. It brings about a state of tranquility as the acoustic guitars and vocal harmonies cleanse me from head to toe of the invisible detritus which I often find hanging onto me. The trio contains personnel from Iron Chic and Fellow Project—to name but a few—but this is so different from either of those two bands that it would probably cause some head scratching as to which genre it should come under in a record store. I would see it straddling indie and folk, and at times it really reminds me of a simpler version of the English band Gomez. I’m also pleased that the record includes the 2011 single “Life as a Monument” which is a stunning piece of songwriting.
