Another of our favorite labels is taking over our Guest Mix feature. Roger Preston of Bleeding Gold Records gives you a little background on the seriously rad label below. You’ll also find a tracklist and 8tracks ready to stream for you below too!

Bleeding Gold Records is a San Diego, California-based label focusing mostly on vinyl and digital releases from an international roster of new and emerging acts, such as Just Handshakes (Leeds,UK), The Sweets (Winston-Salem, North Carolina) and Os Drogons (Chambéry, France). Our bands vary in genre from indie pop, lo-fi, folk to shoegaze and beyond. The most recent release from Space Heat (San Diego, CA) signals a shift in focus on local talent as well as plans to collaborate with their label collective Field Trips, which will feature 5 separate projects all sharing members, co-released with Bleeding Gold. Along with these projects there will be the debut full-length 12″ from Tape Waves

Laurie Hulme on Golden Glow’s “Beauty / Duty”

Posted in Band Update with tags , , , , , on January 17, 2014 by bleedinggold

I first met Pierre (Golden Glow), and then later that night Laurie, on a trip to the UK in 2011 when the band THE NOTES had toured a bit in France and I played tour-dad. Before the guys headed back to Uni in Southampton and I returned home to the US, we traveled up to Manchester to meet up with Pierre. He and I had already begun planning the release of his debut album and this was a good time to meet face to face. We met for a pint, went to Piccadilly Records, had some more drinks, met up with Pierre’s friends that would eventually make up the live band for Golden Glow, and continued the party until there were no other places open in the city. Legendary night!

I asked Laurie Hulme (aka Songs For Walter) – co-producer of the new Golden Glow EP “Beauty/Duty” – to answer 4 questions about the making of the album. 

P+Ltreated

BleedingGold: How did you get involved with the recording of the EP?

LaurieHulme: Obviously I really enjoyed playing in GG. Pierre writes great tunes and he allowed us all a certain amount of freedom to develop parts or play things subtly differently when we played live. Pierre records most of his stuff on his 4 track but he talked about wanting more control over the mix and with us practically living next door to each other it made sense to mix in my (very humble) home studio.

BG: What is your favorite track and why?

LH: Probably ‘The Scene.’ When we first played it live it was a lot faster. The version on here is so much dreamier, it has a kind of effortlessness to it and the Anna Karina vocal sample fits so well.

BG: Knowing Pierre the little bit that i do, i’m assuming there were some crazy nights involved – care to share any stories of over-drinking, etc possibly related to the recording?

LH: We probably spent ten times the amount of time talking about the fact we were gonna do this EP than it took to actually sit down and do it. We’d often mix for a bit and then head out into town. We had a practise room right in the middle of town which we’d often visit in the small hours after the bars had closed and play music at ridiculous volumes through the PA into the morning. I recall one morning when Pierre was so hungover he went to work wearing his slippers!

BG: Your thoughts on Pierre’s move to London?

LH: I think Pierre is really suited to London. I know he’s loving being in the thick of it already. He knew pretty much everyone in Manchester so I guess it’s very different for him being more anonymous down there, perhaps a lot more refreshing.

Golden Glow WEB

Golden Glow, the solo project of singer-songwriter Pierre Hall, is set to release a new 6-track EP, ‘Beauty / Duty’ on 27th January via Bleeding Gold Records, with a sound that echoes the laid-back, idyllic melodies of Real Estate and Wild Nothing. After some full band recording sessions with an outside producer, Pierre decided the sound was becoming almost too clinical and lost some of the magic that comes with the limitations of using more basic equipment. Pierre decided to abort the sessions and go back to the four-track, the result being the new 6-track EP, ‘Beauty / Duty’, influenced by Felt, New Order, Arthur Russell, Velvet Underground, The Cure, and Unknown Mortal Orchestra.

10 Bleeding Gold cover songs by other Bleeding Gold artists!!

Bleeding Gold will be slowing down for the remainder of the year. We are taking a break to reassess the current musical landscape, pay off some serious business debt and return to the fold at a later date with a new business plan that will be better for the artists, the label, and most importantly, the fans.

The download is FREE – but if there is anything you can give, know that the money will go into helping Bleeding Gold return like a phoenix!

Cheers!
