We’re delighted to be working with GospelbeacH again – this time, at Gullivers!

The second album from GospelbeacH continues to deftly honour the grand tradition of West Coast rock and roll. This time around it’s more 70s FM rock than 60s AM gold, more cosmo than country with a theme of timeless love.

Straightforward, inviting songwriting and singing by Brent Rademaker (a founding member of Beachwood Sparks). Warm classic production and tight harmonies once again by guitarist/vocalist Jason Soda. Recorded in Los Angeles at Palomino Sound, Jason’s new 1970s vintage artisan recording studio. Third GospelbeacH core member Jonny Niemann’s cascading piano, organ and mellotron fill out the albums rich sound.

In the tradition of the Troubadour scene of the 1970s Another Summer of Love features some of the GospelbeacH friends and Los Angeles’ finest players and singers including Pearl Charles, Miranda Lee Richards, members of Wilco, Mapache, Eels, and pickers from the Grand Ole Echo.

The album artwork features reflective photography by GospelbeacH guitarist/singer Neal Casal and Allah-Las drummer Matthew Correia.

‘More refined nods to the Flying Burrito Brothers twang that informed Rademaker’s former group, Beachwood Sparks’ – Magnet Magazine

Support comes from The Hanging Stars. London-based psych-folk-country quintet The Hanging Stars will release their second album Songs For Somewhere Else in February 2018. Taking cues from both sides of the Atlantic, they mainline the dying embers of the early 70s psychedelic folk and cosmic country scenes, transforming them into an energised new sound for our times.

As the title suggests, the album is about escapism from the everyday, against the cynicism and greed that pervades society. With this album, The Hanging Stars usher the next phase of their musical development, with Richard Olson’s (The See-See/Eighteenth Day of May) astute lyrical observations and honeyed vocals at the fore, backed by the band’s creative musical arrangements. Features guest appearances from members of Brian Jonestown Massacre and Miranda Lee Richards.
