GospelbeacH – “Albatross Baby”


This one’s for the nuggets freaks and bubblegum creeps out there. West Coast swingers GospelbeaH nail a cover of the ’73 Glam-rocked single from platform obscurities Chunky. A dash of Norman Greenbaum, a splash of Sweet in full blown form and the song’s stuck in your head for life. Brent and the band give their single a welcome revival and a huge sound, melting the wires together with polyester panache and dragging this one through six pounds of shag on the way to your speakers. I’m always gonna be a sucker for a good glam cover and this one does an excellent job of welding GospelbeacH’s already fried sensibilities to the song’s natural bulbous bounce. The cut appears on a new EP from the band that rounds up an excellent crop of glam covers including Michel Pagliaro, The American Jam Band, Crazy Elephant, and Sandy Salisbury. The EP lands at Brent’s Creation Records April 15th.
