On A Golden Shore arrives as The Hanging Stars reflect on a year of triumphs. With an Americana Music Association Bob Harris - sanctioned award and a Nashville sell-out in Third Mans Blue Room with Jack White approvingly looking on, theyre a leading light in the UK Cosmic Americana cohort. Their standing has allowed them to pay less attention to any preconceptions of what they are supposed to be. On A Golden Shore - their fifth album and their second for the pioneering Loose Music, following 2022s Hollow Heart - finds them definitively themselves and presents a set of disparate songs whose fundamental linkage is the band that made them.
On A Golden Shore was recorded at Edwyn Collins Clashnarrow Studios with Sean Read producing. Singer/guitarist Richard Olson, drummer Paulie Cobra, multi-instrumentalist Patrick Ralla, plus freshman bassist Paul Milne laid down the albums backbone over eight days. Mostly recorded live, even the solos done as a piece. Much is first take because trying better, it never worked as well. Pedal-steel player Joe Harvey-Whyte created and added his parts at his London studio bringing shimmery psychedelic goodness.
Smartly sequenced On A Golden Shore proceeds in clusters of songs; commencing with the free and easy choogle of Let Me Dream Of You, encompassing the sunny glam of Sweet Light, the baggy Balearic waft of Happiness Is A Bird, the pan pipes and bongos of the exotic Golden Shore, through to the rolling banjo of No Way Spell and the celestial cascades of Heart In A Box. Fashioned instinctively On A Golden Shore is ultimately an album of sensation as much as thought, filled with fleeting moments of blissful excess, and stumbling, rushing flutters of sound; its evanescent psychedelia, divine choruses, and shards of strings combine into an infectious, compelling Cosmic Heartbreak Boogie.
