***GOLD BOX KINGDOM***
A review from the SF Weekly:
Gold Box Kingdom
Heavy & Light
The dulcet tones of local chanteuse Amy Bruckmeier shimmer throughout this record. From the first notes of the relaxed, charming title track, it''s clear that no one''s in a hurry here -- as Bruckmeier''s vocals soar and soothe above sparse, colorful arrangements. Heavy & Light is much more of the latter than the former -- music for a sunny Sunday picnic at the beach or cold beers on the front porch. Dotted with drum loops, acoustic strumming, and sprightly samples, Gold Box Kingdom''s debut is pretty, patient, and strangely calming. Though a lyric on the album''s playful highlight "Suede Pumas" reads, "She wants the world to know / her hip-huggers lack material," the same can''t be said of Gold Box Kingdom. Catch them live at Papa Toby''s Café on April 11.
Sexy and surreal. Earthy and psychedelic. Subtle and delicious.
Gold Box Kingdom uses a combination of gorgeous vocals, acoustic rock and subtle psychedelia to create dreamy landscape of lush songs with powerful lyrics.
Gold Box Kingdom began in early 2002 when singer/songwriter Amy Bruckmeier began collaborating with bassist Corey Wentworth. Playing small café''s, art spaces and mostly acoustic environments, Gold Box Kingdom began with Amy''s voice, songs and acoustic guitar, and Corey on electric bass. Corey''s playing style is atmospheric and melodic, a perfect compliment to Amy''s shimmering vocals. After a year of playing together as a duo their sound had evolved towards a larger sound that required more instrumentation.
Working with producer and drummer Dave Tweedie and keyboardist Justus Dobrin, the CD "Heavy & Light" was created. The sound captured on this collection of songs points towards both the future and past of Gold Box Kingdom, a combination of well crafted songs performed with an intuitive, organic performance.
Gold Box Kingdom''s current CD "Heavy & Light" charted as a top seller in September, March and June 2003 at Streetlight Records Santa Cruz, California.
