My Gold Mask (6/24/11)

So right after a great house concert, we went to see My Gold Mask at the Beachland Tavern.  These guys were just as good as I was hoping for.  I had recently purchased their A Million Miles (From Where We Were) EP and was instantly smitten with their darker, more eclectic  pop/rock sound.

Gretta Rochelle, as a one-woman percussion goddess, really re-envisioned what could be a ho-hum two-person band structure - and it worked fabulously.

Throw in a Robyn cover, and I'm smitten.

I even re-purchased the A Million Miles EP on vinyl because I liked them so much...

Here's an article from Scene that I'd been holding on to as well...

"It's just about connecting with people that are interested in what you're doing," says Armando. "A lot of bands can probably say the same, but I do feel like our fans seem to really connect with [us]. At the end of the day, it's all about your music. If you have a song that connects with people, that's what is going to matter the most. It'll filter its way through everything."

So far, My Gold Mask's brief existence has yielded a couple of heavily blogged tracks ("Bitches" and "Violet Eyes") and a slew of comparisons to other bands with dark undertones, surf rock riffs, and dynamic femme-fatale vocalists — the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and the Raveonettes among them."

Oh, btw... Kudos for for the Fangs Out opening performance.  Been wanting to catch these guys and glad I finally did:
