Gudjohr


Gudjohr was formed as a solo project by Kips Golden (Guitarist in Saint Elmo and Bassist in The Best Of British Suicide) in 2012. After recording the singles on 'J'adore' and playing at various open mic nights around his hometown of Bath, UK, Kips moved to Brighton, UK with progressive rock band Saint Elmo. Inspired by the lo-fi/ambient tones of Philidelphia acts Kurt Vile and The War on Drugs, Gudjohr began to blend this sound with the fingerpicking style of more traditional folk artists Read more on Last.fm
Gudjohr was formed as a solo project by Kips Golden (Guitarist in Saint Elmo and Bassist in The Best Of British Suicide) in 2012. After recording the singles on 'J'adore' and playing at various open mic nights around his hometown of Bath, UK, Kips moved to Brighton, UK with progressive rock band Saint Elmo. Inspired by the lo-fi/ambient tones of Philidelphia acts Kurt Vile and The War on Drugs, Gudjohr began to blend this sound with the fingerpicking style of more traditional folk artists, such as Nick Drake and John Martyn, and the gentle lilting vocals of Sufjan Stevens. The debut EP 'Memories Of Once Known' was recorded, mixed and mastered over the 2012/2013 winter in his bedroom. After recruiting fellow Saint Elmo guitarist Joe Giddings to create the ambient tones live, Gudjohr began to play shows around the south of England. The second EP 'In Tandem' was released in August 2013.

Recorded at a new house this collection contained an expanded sound, full of layered guitars, synths and driving drum loops. It was described as "determinedly lo-fi" by Simon Li, while Mudkiss went with 'psychedelic' and 'progressive', comparing songs to Tame Impala and Pink Floyd. The third EP 'Looks Kinda Lunar', released in early 2014, took yet another shift in style and change of house. Moving towards a more electronic sound, the songs replace the usual guitar and bass backbone with synths, xylophones and effected samples. It created a tropical sound reminiscent of early Yeasayer, Talking Heads and Talk Talk. The 4th EP is a much darker affair with guest appearances from Megan Belle, Jack Harvey and Tor Sanderson.

It is to be released in August 2014 and will be the final release of the 4 EP collection. Free tracks can be downloaded from their official site, http://gudjohr.bandcamp.com Read more on Last.fm.
