The more I hear from Boston duo Goldbloc, the more I'm convinced that they're one of the best slept on acts of our time. But it's no surprise that their ever growing fan base has caught on like wildfire; "Days of Dreaming" shot up the Hype Machine charts when it was first released and was the catalyst to their success. Dubbed as "music for the mind," their latest project entitled Black Gold captures you into a 16 and a half minute state of bliss as the sultry sounds and chilling instrumentals enter your ears. While it's hard to pick a standout track, the mellow, slow burner jam "Runaway" is one that you're guaranteed to play on loop as your night slowly moves into day. The beautiful, seductive down tempo sounds from producer Goldenhaus coupled with the breezy vocals from Solei will be the soundtrack to your late night drives and after parties this summer. If I had to describe this project in one phrase, "audio crack" is the first thing that comes to mind. Check it out down below and go ahead and like their Facebook page for a free download of the EP.
