Randsburg is typically a 5-piece outfit that has more sound than some smaller venues know what to do with. We’re not talking “noise” here, I mean good old-fashioned guitar, bass, drums, and a bit of the keys working themselves into a song that makes you feel something. I had the pleasure of listening to their soon-to-be-released album pre-mastering and I can tell you, there was not one song that didn’t make me feel any number of emotions. Good, bad, or ugly; I think music should make you feel. Whether or not you agree with that sentiment, I don’t doubt this album will be thoroughly enjoyed by all.
These ever-so-patient musicians have been working on the album at hand for over a year. The songwriting has spanned that time and then some. Time spent is indicated in the variety of genres this album covers with each song. It spans from country to blues to hard southern to alternative to folk rock. It’s an eclectic piece of work; this album won’t just sit in one genre. - unEARTH Music Hub


Road-Trippin' With Randsburg
by. Sarah Escalante

Mmmm mmm mmmmm I’m in love and don’t care who knows it. After one listen, I was ready to pack my bags and skip town with Randsburg’s self-titled debut album (released June 29, 2012). This is road-trip music, people. Windows down, volume up, complete disregard of the speed limit, and destination unknown. Leaving little more than clouds of dust behind me, I could drive for days listening to this record.

In 33 minutes, this band—Bryce Schlange, Austin Fullmer, Wyatt Fullmer, Dave Pelusi, James Ransom, Michael Grady (Hiatus)—takes its listener on an emotionally gritty journey through the trials of life, love, lust, and loss with poignant lyrics and captivating melodies. There is angst within their quick drums and guitar licks reminiscent of Mumford and Sons, paired with the kind of catchy phrasing that turns songs into hits.

The album as a whole truly showcases Randsberg’s breadth of ability. Each subsequent track is grippingly better than the next, and if you asked me to pick the weakest link… I’d call you crazy because there simply isn’t one.
There are moments of glorious no-holds-barred, particularly in “Sweet Samantha,” and “Red Queen,” where they really sink their teeth in by means of stinging guitar riffs, deep bass and dirty downbeats. Conversely, at the lead of Schlange’s haunting vocals, they bravely tap into more vulnerable veins during tracks like, “Carolina Breathes Easy,” and the stunning, “Free,” which ends the album with the beautifully chilling lyric, “now why you gotta ghost and say things like that to me, I’ll stick my finger in the Novocain and rub it on your tongue and teethe, so you can’t speak.”

Hailing from Sunset Beach, California, Randsburg is well on their way to making an indelible mark on OC’s ever-growing music scene. To get a taste of them live and local, come see them in some of their upcoming dates.

You can listen to the album on their Soundcloud page, but you may as well buy it, because you will need it for the road.

Bio

Randsburg is a crowd pleasing band. Named after the all but forgotten California ghost town, Randsburg is Bryce Schlange(guitar/vox), Austin Fullmer(Guitar/vox), and Wyatt Fullmer(Drums/vox) with James Ransom (keys), and Vince Phung(Bass). The heart of Randsburg's engaging music is a mix of Southern, blues-rock delving into folk and pop-americana washed over by Schlange's haunting, and often personal lyrical story telling, giving the feel of a Kings of Leon / Ryan Adams love child.
