Ethan Gold – Songs From A Toxic Apartment
2011, Gold Records
Los Angeles based singer/songwriter Ethan Gold releases his latest work, Songs From A Toxic Apartment on January 11, 2011. Full of a Morrissey-esque melancholic nonchalance, Songs From A Toxic Apartment trundles down the emotional back roads of Ethan Gold’s mind, in a tired and seemingly endless musical shuffle. The songs on Toxic Apartment all seem built around relationship dysfunction, and Gold’s vocal style is whiney and self-absorbed. God starts solidly with “Why Don’t You Sleep?” but quickly falls off the cliff of perseveration. Gold shows some real potential on Songs From A Toxic Apartment, particularly with crafting of melodies, but Ethan Gold gets trapped by his own demons and never quite escapes.
