Todd Evans, formerly of Atticus Fault, released his first record as The Golden Sounds in 2004 and is already counting to 5 releases up to 2012. Including the new album "The fireflies were right", which is the first album since "Lo-fi sounds for a Hi-fi heart" in 2007. The music from The Golden Sounds hasn´t got much in common with Atticus Fault, except for the track "Half ass dreams" on this new album that is more upbeat and has the same atmosphere as Todd Evans former band. Otherwise, the songs are quite slow and can be described as spacey indie rock. It takes a few spins to get into the album but the songs truly grow, I have started to like "Are we gonna shine" and "Lovers and dreamers" very much. Real beautiful. His voice sounds almost fragile, it´s a cool record anyhow.
