Golden Brown’s music has been quietly blossoming in the mountains of Colorado for some time now, but with his first outing for Inner Islands, Stefan Beck seems have found a crystalline well of songs deeper than anything in his catalog. On the cosmic, lapping “Fruiting Bodies,” one of the first cracks into Gems and Minerals, Beck’s work takes on a pulsing light that shimmers with an otherworldly sadness. Combining trickling keys and crystalline guitars, the song pushes away a bit from some of the more pastoral visions that Stefen has embraced in the past. Those still surface on the tape, as evidenced by second single, “Finisterre,” but there’s something sublime about “Fruiting Bodies.” The new album is out October 22nd from Inner Islands.
