Dipped In Gold Signees Mush Take Aim At The Gig Economy In New Single

Tuesday, 31 July 2018 Written by Helen Payne

The monthly subscription service Too Pure Singles Club came to an end last year after over 120 releases from artists such as Pulled Apart By Horses and Drahla.

Out of its ashes comes Dipped In Gold, a new record label whose first signees are the Leeds-based alternative guitar band Mush.

Having already toured with OMNI, Ulrika Spacek and Parquet Courts, the quartet have shared a new single Gig Economy. Energetic, angular and punchy, the track hits all the right notes while criticising the toil it takes to survive as a young person. It continues a similar theme from their last single Alt Facts, which sneered at fake news. Have a listen below.

Mush have headline shows lined up throughout September.

Sat September 22 2018 - MANCHESTER YES
Sun September 23 2018 - NEWCASTLE UPON TYNE Cumberland Arms

Technical And Topical: Black Peaks' Guitarist Joe Gosney Discusses 'All That Divides'
Fri 12 Oct 2018
Music critics are often guilty of presenting rock's history as linear. Progressive rock emerged out of pop music and psychedelia in the late 1960s but was ultimately killed off by punk in the late 1970s, so the narrative goes. Punk, with its raw sound and DIY ethic, was also a better vehicle for voicing social and political issues than prog, which was considered more escapist and lyrically concerned with “high culture”.
Cool With The Bargain Bin: Mike Pace Investigates The Pop Form On 'Smooth Sailing'
Thu 04 Oct 2018
A few weekends ago there was a sale at a record shop in the next town over. Their stock list had ballooned, taking over a small warehouse space on a suburban street. Pretty much everything had to go, and it was going cheap. The bargain bin has no respect for reputation, so nestled among the trashy cock rock LPs were rough diamonds and certified gems; ambitious works that shifted serious units and ambitious works that were chalked up to folly back when labels were paying for things like that.
Out Of The Shade: Doyle Bramhall II Steps Into The Limelight
Thu 11 Oct 2018
There won’t be many musicians with an address book as impressive as Doyle Bramhall II’s. From Elton John and Roger Waters to Sheryl Crow and Alain Toussaint, not to mention his position as Eric Clapton’s right-hand man for nearly two decades, the Texan born singer, songwriter, guitarist and producer has often been the go-to collaborator for some of the greatest names in the business. Such a role inevitably meant putting his own career on hold, but with the release of ‘Shades’ – his second solo album in two years - he’s finally taking centre stage.
Boygenius: The Badass Supergroup We've All Been Waiting For
Wed 10 Oct 2018

Julien Baker, Phoebe Bridgers and Lucy Dacus were pictured together, draped moodily on a sofa. Looking suspiciously like the sleeve image from Crosby, Stills and Nash’s self-titled bow, the word ‘Boygenius’ ran below them, as well as that all-important stamp of approval from Matador Records. Speculation bubbled. Rumours were whispered.
