Review : GOLDRUSH - The Heart Is The Place
Silent UrpoarBritain’s Goldrush has released one of indie rock’s first must-have albums of 2007, The Heart is the Place. Bristling with catchy melodies, fuzzed out guitars and insightful lyrics, this album sees Goldrush paying tribute to their influences (Flaming Lips, Wilco), while at the same time forging their own musical path.

Their Oxford bred style of '90s Britpop may be considered passé, but there's just something about a group who does something incredibly well. Their name might not be uttered in the same breaths as Coldplay, Doves or even Keane, but I doubt that will last long....full text
