Every once in a while a band comes out whose music sounds a great deal like its name and the warm, mellow and rich tone of New York City’s own Golden Bloom fit their name perfectly. Fronted by multi-talented, multi-instrumentalist Shawn Fogel, who writes and records all the music himself, Golden Bloom plays a bright, optimistic style of power-pop that will get stuck in your head in a good way. They will be playing at Piano’s in NYC with Alan Cohen Experience on Saturday, Aug. 29 to celebrate the release of their new album, Fan The Flames. Piano’s is located 158 Ludlow St in NYC.
