Toronto songstress Basia Bulat is back, and in complete contrast to the new Midnight Juggernauts offering (see below), this track off of her upcoming release Heart Of My Own is better than anything from 2007’s Oh, My Darling.
“Gold Rush” can go from the most bombast a folk-pop outfit can muster up to a sublime mandolin and accordion arrangement in a heartbeat, and it works wonderfully. The song is very dynamic, emotionally compelling and Basia reaches heights here never imagined by her past work. If you think Feist is a bit too coy, check out this track and watch for the release of Heart on My Own on Jan. 26th, 2010. Happy listening!
