Neil Golden played for bands ranging from Elf Power and Japancakes to Shonna Tucker and Eye Candy. His debut album as Golden Eels is Periscopes in the Air.
Golden Eels popped onto my feed because of our mutual music preferences on Bandcamp. Their songwriter, Neil Golden, has played on records for several Athens, Georgia bands, ranging from the Elephant 6 legends, Elf Power to the Glands and Country Fried Rock alumni Shonna Tucker and Eye Candy. Periscopes in the Air leans toward the psychedelic pop sounds of Golden's earlier collaborations, yielding a completely DIY record that suits long commutes and pleasant workday distractions.
