Goldspot - Aerogramme

Frontman, creative force and possessor of one of the best names we've come across in a while, Siddhartha Khosla leads New York indie popsters Goldspot. Upcoming biographical third album Aerogramme (August 20), co-produced by Khosla and Jeff Peters (The Beach Boys, Brian Wilson), is a charming mash of melodic retro-rock influences -- 10CC, Beatles, Del Amitri -- blended with Khosla's own idiosyncritic art-pop writing style, eclectic instrumentation (harmonium anyone?) and touches of his own New Delhi heritage and family story (needless to say he and Goldspot are hugely popular in India). DC fave "Abyss" has all the earmarks of a classic summer song: bright, eminently hummable and boasting a chorus that's one large, sharply honed hook. Stream the equally fine new single "The Border Line" when you click through below...
