Born Gold played CMJ, partially with shovels — BV day party pics & full LP stream

Born Gold

During Purity Ring‘s set at the BrooklynVegan party Saturday, they mentioned that everyone should catch Born Gold (formerly Gobble Gobble) who were playing an hour later in the backroom, and who used to feature Purity Ring’s Corin Roddick as a member. Anyone who took their advice knows what went down, but if you didn’t, and haven’t seen Born Gold in the past, they’ve got a show that you won’t want to miss. They requested that all the stage lights be turned off so they could use their own blinking light show, and once they emerged from darkness, they revealed a show unlike anything I’ve ever seen. The singer/keyboard/knob player stayed on stage behind his table of electronics as the other two band members danced through the crowd on stilts, banged shovels together for snare hits, gave audience members high fives, and just about anything else you never imagined a live band would do. Their set was largely (if not entirely) material off their recently released LP Bodysongs, which you can stream its entirety below with options to buy the whole set or download each song individually for free.
