SXSW Song of the Day: Blue & Gold – It’s Only You


Brooklyn act Blue & Gold has this nice bluesy-rock vibe to them. They just recently released an self-titled EP and have been playing a lot of shows around New York, including one of my new favorite places – The Brooklyn Bowl. I hope Questlove paid them with Fried Chicken, cos that stuff was so, so delicious and I have noticed a lot of bands are really skinny. Maybe they aren’t skinny, maybe they are just malnourished. However, malnourished jeans wouldn’t really sell, so skinny it is.

Anyways, before I go even further off the cliff, their track, It’s Only You caught my ear. It’s got a nice guitar solo and yearning lyrics laid against a 50’s era rock backdrop. It makes me feel like this was a song Michael J Fox could sing in the movie Back to the Future to impress his future mother.

I think they are playing SXSW because they asked us if they could be on our showcase, which we really don’t have since we just go there to drink. Having said that, listen to their song.
