New Band Watch: Dawn Golden & Rosy Cross

On rare occasions I can remember new band names, they are either silly or funny. My latest successes include Teengirl Fantasy and Bitch House.

It must be a bit of a shock then to be able to remember one goes by the name of Dawn Golden and Rosy Cross, which consists, as far as I know, a mysterious guy named Chris in Chicago, who writes about drug addiction and suicide and has no intention of touring yet.

A full length EP named Blow was released on the 16th of August and hasn't been mentioned much on this side of the pond. BUT, the lovely Bandcamp transaction record shows that Pitchfork's Ryan Schreiber made a swift purchase a day before it came out. Must be nice for Dawn.

As previously predicted, Winter 2010/Spring 2011 is going to be very Witchy and ghostly, and DG&RC is a nice addition to the genre which grows into not only a movement but a full-blown indie evolution.

Listen to the EP in full and enter TUMBLR or TWITTER for 15% off your minimum $6 purchase on Bandcamp. Come on boys and girls, that's one and a half Starbucks caramel frappuccino which you wouldn't buy anymore as the weather's crap for the next 6 months.  It's worth it.
