Vancouver, BC music fans are likely familiar with No Gold, as they've been playing shows and releasing occasional songs for the past several years. Now, the ever-evolving trio have finally released their long-delayed debut full-length, released on as Unfamiliar Records on February 22.
The eight-song offering was recorded in the band's studio in Vancouver's Chinatown over the summer. It incorporates a hefty dose of electronic sounds into the group's usual tropical pop stance, with the press release describing the album as "a collision of samples and synth pads with bass, guitar and drums informed by Can, Arthur Russell, Terry Riley and Larry Heard."
The record was released on vinyl and digital formats, with no CD.
