Wellington's the Golden Awesome are blissed-out soundscapists who like it loud, immersive, jubilant, fuzzed out and loud. They are the perfect party band for when you're sick of talking to people and just want to lose yourself in the music. The Golden Awesome's debut album Autumn was released by Brooklyn's M'Lady's Records a few years back, and a follow-up is currently in the making. Singer Stef Animal has recently moved to the other end of the country, while guitarist Jo Contag has been writing live orchestral film scores – so Golden Awesome shows have become rare treats of late. Make sure to see them while you can!
