Gold Star

Gold Star is Marlon Rabenreither. On his forthcoming lp, Big Blue — named after the ramshackle Hollywood home where he produced and recorded the album — Rabenreither shines and redefines the sound of his last two efforts. A Los Angeles native, the resulting album is an autobiographical work as indebted to writers Fante, Baldwin and Chandler as it is Neil Young, Leonard Cohen and Wilco.
