"Golden Triangle Album Review"

http://www.fensepost.com/main/2009/03/17/golden-triangle-golden-triangle-album-review/

Insanity comes in many forms, most undesirable. However, there is one that is much more intriguing and inspirational than the others: audible insanity. Golden Triangle (MySpace) is the perfect example of outstanding audible insanity. It can be heard in their music, and seen in the photographs of their live performances. They don’t call it garage punk for nothing.

Yes, it’s loud. It’s rambunctious and raucous and extreme. The vocals are damn near indecipherable and the guitar distortion and excessive percussion overpowers all. But it’s really, really catchy and it’s really, really fun. Songs like “Red Coats” and “Prize Fighter” stand out with slightly more coherent vocals, but there just as amazing as others, like “Wichita” and “Night Brigade”.

This LP is brief with seven songs and three of them under two minutes. But it’s also lengthy in that it requires multiple consecutive listens. Even the punk genius that is “20 20? at a mere 53 seconds and the 1 minute 19 closer “Annette’s Got The Hits” are worthy of continual play. At times you’ll think B-52s have come back as the anti-B-52s and after succumbing to several doses of electroshock therapy. And if that sounds strange, this shouldn’t: it’s fucking brilliant! - Fensepost

Bio

The six members of Golden Triangle are originally from Atlanta, Memphis, and Austin, and now collectively hail from Brooklyn, NY. Their sound is one part girl-group, one part garage punk, and another part that is wholly inexplicable – it could be said that they sound like an updated, super fucked up version of The B-52s, which is a win for everyone.
