Westcoast Rock was played on the US west coast in the 70s - and now finds its imitators in Brooklyn, NY in the here and now. Responsible for this are three young guys from Big Apple, who emulate legends like Creedence Clearwater Revival or Allman Brothers with their untitled debut. The Golden Grass are adept at their work, scatter Southern Rock elements, cultivate their psychedelic vein with howling guitar solos and know how to please above all with great melodies. The first two tracks, "Please Man" and "Stuck On A Mountain" are such tracks, which also appeal with serenity and catchy hooklines. In general, it is the casual, unobtrusive character that leaves its mark on this album. In "One More Time" and "Sugar 'N' Spice" it gets a bit brisker, in "Wheels" which lasts about 13 minutes the band takes their time. Of course one believes to have heard all this already a hundred times, if without doubt also true. But you haven't heard it much better than at The Golden Grass.
