The Verigolds: For Margaret

San Diego based neo-psych quartet The Verigolds released the exquisite single Crossfire last year. It's was the first taste for their debut album For Margaret, a collection of vintage sounding songs. Touching base with the Jefferson Airplane and and the late Eigthies/early Nineties peak of 4AD acts like Belly, they put the vocals upfront, but take your time to dissect all the goings on in the background. This is a band with a varied musical palette, alternating between gentle tinkling keyboards, old school echo effects, occasional outbursts of guitar and well placed viola.

For Margaret is a debut, but it has the markings of a band who have found their sound. This isn't a diamond in the rough, by a multifaceted jewel.

Jenna Cotton: vocals, keys, guitar
