Aaron Schroeder’s new release Black & Gold packs an indie-pop punch that nearly knocked my lights out (or maybe that was Con Edison?) Handclapping and horns. Keyboards and catchy hooks. What more could I possibly ask for? The album has a wonderfully full sound with a sort of New Pornographers style of instrumentation and energetic vocals. I can’t recommend Black & Gold highly enough, I’ve only had it for the past couple days but it’s already got a sure place on my top ten list this year.
