((No Gold)) Band Profile and Upcoming New York City Concerts - Oh My Rockness

This is a really good band that I had never even heard of until today. How did I hear about No Gold today? Well, I came across their name in our show listings and I was like, "I bet that's a good band."

I sure bet on the right horse because No Gold is definitely a good band. Now considering I didn't know they existed yesterday, you can't blame me too much for not knowing a whole lot about No Gold. I know they're from Vancouver. I know there are three dudes in the band. I know they mix up live instruments with stuff like drum pads and pedals and loops and things.

I know they sometimes sound psych. I know sometimes they sound tropical. I know sometimes they sound like a dance band. I know sometimes they sound like American Don era Don Caballero. And sometimes they sound a little like Animal Collective.

But really, I know No Gold ultimately sound like none of these things. They sound like No Gold. That would have meant nothing to me yesterday, but today it means something. It means they sound like a good band. Here's to new music discoveries.
