Published Jun 30, 2011Aside from his work with Mist and as Radio People, Cleveland, OH-based sound sculptor Sam Goldberg has also released a number of top-notch synth and guitar experiments under his own name. Most recently, that included his brand new album Having Had Forgot.
Despite the fact that the album is billed to his own name, Having Had Forgot sees Goldberg team up with a rotating cast of musicians who contribute both acoustic and electric guitars, field recordings, percussion, synthesizers, saxophone, double bass and clarinet. As a press release explains, "The result is eight careful, delicate songs; varied in instrumentation, but presenting the same elegant consideration of mood and contemplation as his solo works."
Having Had Forgot is available now from Arbor Records. Album track "Floorless" is available for download here and "Dalmation Coast" is available here.
In a recent interview with Exclaim! regarding Mist, Goldberg also revealed that he was working on a new album under his Radio People moniker, to be released by Mexican Summer later this year.
