WONGIE DISCOVERY: rocket & the ghost - gold (live @ kings county distillery)
rocket & the ghost - gold (live @ kings county distillery)
nothing like having a friend take you to a gig where you know very little about the act and then slowly, one song at a time, the band wins you over with their solid songwriting and focused live performance. this is the case of brooklyn based rocket & the ghost, led by singer/songwriter kiyoshi matsuyama. with a shy initial stage confidence (they're only a year old yo!), all that was totally forgotten by song four as the band performed strong song after strong song that make up their impressive repertoire. check out the tune that won the best love song category at the 13th independent music awards last week. i'm a fan!
