goldrush Ozona (mini-CD, £6.50)label: truck
'Ozona' is a 1 horse town located in the desert 200 miles from Austin Texas. On their way to play this years SBSW festival, Goldrush's tour van should break down there. The band spent a bourbon sodden night in the town's sole bar surrounded by inebriated rednecks who invited the band out into the desert to "shoot some firearms". They of course went. The Ozona EP is named after this never to be revisited place as the isolation and wilderness of the town has parallels with where Goldrush found themselves after their time with Virgin Records. The tracks contained here are culled from various recording sessions, some in New York with Dave Fridmann (Flaming Lips).
