Few have captured artistic honesty, musical purity, and sheer songcraft as LAs Goldspot do on their full-length debut Tally Of The Yes Men: an inspired melding of decades of rock and pop influences with the melodic sensibilities of old Indian film music.

Few have captured artistic honesty, musical purity, and sheer songcraft as LAs Goldspot do on their full-length debut Tally Of The Yes Men: an inspired melding of decades of rock and pop influences with the melodic sensibilities of old Indian film music. Imagine Paul Simon heading to Mumbai to record his next record and listening to the Cure on the flight and youre getting close. Siddhartha (founder, lead singer / songwriter of Goldspot) is quick to pay tribute to his early influences: "I grew up listening to whatever my parents had in their cassette decks - Mohd. Rafi, Kishore Kumar, Mukesh - these were great Indian playback singers from the 1940's and 50's.

The melodies were brilliant. And then one day when I was 14, I figured out that if you flipped the switch on the stereo from 'tape' to 'radio' you could hear music with English words. That's when I heard R.E.M.'s Green, and it was my first introduction to Western music." Goldspot thrives on Siddhartha's creative chemistry with drummer and co-writer Ramy Antoun. "Sid would come to me with demos of the songs that he had recorded in his apartment, and we would finish them together." "We both have similar backgrounds," notes Siddhartha, referring to his Indian upbringing and Ramy's formative years in Egypt.

"There's a lot of connection on that level," confirms Ramy.
