Leonard Cohen & Tindersticks fans, unite!
Listen to American Airlines' intimate session.
The GOLDEN DREGS is in essence the project and brainchild of English songwriter Benjamin Woods. His vocals – drenched in whisky and cloaked in a shroud of longing, loss and regret – are immediately reminiscent of Leonard Cohen and Stuart Staples (Tindersticks). In other words, good folk. His lyrics are always deeply personal, filled with longing & melancholy and oozing poetic vision. The proof: ‘On Grace & Dignity’, their third album, soon to be released on the prestigious 4AD label (see too: Aldous Harding, Perfume Genius,…).
- “A rich tapestry… Your album of the year” (Loud and Quiet)
- "bashed and bruised fireside sing-alongs spiked with yearning and melancholy… dispatched with substance and soul.” (MOJO)
- “rolls ahead with understated warmth and beauty” (Stereogum)
The Golden Dregs will play at AB on 17 April.
