• chris staples Golden Age (CD, £12.50)

    label: Barsuk Records

    Golden Age meets us at the intersection of nostalgia and the future, and holds out a hand. It pulls us back into a moment, and asks us stay there even as our hyperactive minds push to race ahead. Staples notes, "It's really easy to idealize an earlier time in your life, but it's not useful. It can be a trap that keeps you from finding new good things to live for. Golden Age is about that myth we carry around. The myth of our past being idyllic. I don't want to waste any more time dwelling on it." Tracks: Relatively Permanent / Golden Age / Missionary / Cheap Shades / Full Color Dream / Park Bench / Always On My Mind / Times Square / Vacation / Hepburn In Summertime / Dog Blowing A Clarinet / Diary
