Coming Back Again is the stunning new sophomore full-length from Brooklyn, New York-based psychedelic rock trio THE GOLDEN GRASS.
Slated to drop this April via Listenable Records, the six-track follow-up to the band’s 2014 critically-lauded, self-titled Svart Records debut, was tracked by Jeff Berner at Galuminum Foil Productions and delivers a truly serpentine audio journey where the epic glory and might of ’70s psychedelia, the sun-drenched warmth of Laurel Canyon’s golden country/folk era and sheer blues-based Southern rock boogie give way to exploratory landscapes, lysergic prog arrangements and a swinging, jazz touch.
In advance of its release, the riff-keepers at The Obelisk are hosting a video clip for opening psalm “Get It Together,” for communal delight issuing of the track, “It’s not long into THE GOLDEN GRASS‘ forthcoming second album, Coming Back Again, that the Brooklynite trio revive the sunshiny spirit of their 2014 self-titled debut and likewise, it’s not much longer after that that they begin to showcase the progression of their sound they’ve enacted over the two years since that record came out. ‘Get it Together’ opens Coming Back Again and couches a relatively simple, friendly lyrical message in a complex vocal arrangement with the refined harmonies of guitarist Michael ‘Professor Plum Brandy’ Rafalowich and drummer Adam ‘Adzo’ Kriney and newcomer bassist/vocalist Frank ‘The Fireball’ Caira topping the first of the outing’s easy-flowing grooves. Tonally, structurally and conceptually engaging, ‘Get it Together’ is about a minute in before Rafalowich dives into an airy psychedelic lead, and with a particularly choice hook, the opener sets a warm tone to which the rest of Coming Back Again seems only too glad to live up. The video trips out some DIY performance footage, and proves even more how far THE GOLDEN GRASS have gone to develop their sound.”

Coming Back Again will be available on CD, limited edition colored vinyl and digitally on April 15th in North America and April 22nd in Europe. Preorders are available now at THIS LOCATION.
Influenced by the likes of such American rock legends as The James Gang, The Allman Brothers, and Grand Funk Railroad, the soulful British psych/mod of The Move, The Pretty Things, and The Action, and the heavy umph of Budgie, Blue Cheer and Blackfoot, THE GOLDEN GRASS synthesizes their influences into a seamless, memorable, and high-energy performance that screams from the past but is a welcome and much needed presence in the now.
In support of their forthcoming new album, THE GOLDEN GRASS will embark on their third European tour this coming May which already includes an appearance at the legendary Freak Valley Festival. A full listing of dates will be announced in the coming weeks. Stand by.
