Maddy Wyatt [Feature Band]

Written by Ron Trembath As a grand scheme of change and hope is brought upon us today, and an intense feeling of revolution is impossible to resist.

Wild Light [Feature Band]

Written by Fense I cannot get “New Hampshire” by Wild Light out of my head. Now, this isn’t one of those pestering annoyances that has you doing everything in your power to replace it with something else.

Ballboy [Feature Band]

I had been searching a different band I’ve been contemplating covering, clicking random links and two to four clicks deep I was there, on their page.

After all, Dandelion Gold is both a label and a collective of musicians — would it then be a label compilation or a blend of songs by the collective and thus titled as such? While I ultimately chose the latter, I later altered it to… Continue reading Dandelion Gold: Sampler Volume 1 [Album Review]
