Austin Indie Rock Quartet Goldcure Plays Bull Bar May 24 and Propaganda May 26
Austin quartet Goldcure plays a straightforward blend of indie-ish pop-rock, but the Texas still comes through. Guitars are bright, rollicking, and purely American, and frontman Adam Buhman's rough-edged croon can veer close to twang. But the band's real talent is in reducing its roots and rock influences to their essences, and then spinning them into a polished package.
Just check the band's MySpace page -- the posted version of the song "What's It Gonna Be Then, Eh" is labeled as a "radio edit," giving a clue to the band's final aspirations. It's been a long time since the reign of bands like Gin Blossoms, whose lumping into the 1990s-alt category was sort of unfair and inaccurate. Goldcure could rise to fill the vacancy for feel-good jangle rock.
