Gospel Gossip – Self-Titled

Gospel Gossip

Review by Christine Mlodzik

After a three year lag, Gospel Gossip has returned with a new self-titled album. It’s a woozy dreamworld which threatens to swallow up the listener, but it’s unlikely anyone will resist being pulled in.

The first track, “4th of July,” sets the tone for the album – it’s a dreamy, hazy, otherworldly sound with its glimmering guitar and Sarah Neinaber’s lush vocals.

“Sad Machines” is syrupy and sweet drugged-out ’60s psychedelia. “Atlantic Blue” is boundless and oceanic.

Each song is superb; my personal favorites are “The Sun” and “Smaller.”

The break might have been just what the doctor ordered. There’s a maturity and depth within each of Gospel Gossip’s songs, as well as a fragility and resilience wound through each note.

Gospel Gossip’s self-titled album is masterful and brilliant, and gives wings to the mind and imagination.
