It's been a while since we talked about Australia's Gold Fields. For a brief span of time in late 2012 to 2013, we caught the band three times, as they tour back and forth for their debut album Black Sun.
Anyway, taking a break from their constant world tour, they managed to release a new single called "Hold Me" last October 2014.
Hear the original song:
We're pretty excited about new music from Gold Fields... and if you can't get enough of the new single, they've compiled five remixes of the song and released them all this week (January 20th, 2015) called, what else?, Hold Me Remixes.
2 Hold Me (Klp Remix) 5:16
3 Hold Me (Tyler Touch Remix) 4:19
4 Hold Me (Yes You Remix) 3:44
5 Hold Me (Kamandi Remix) 3:15
Guitarist virtuoso Yonatan Gat (Monotonix) recently shared "Goldrush", the first single from his new album, Director, out March 3rd on Joyful Noise Recordings. You can listen to the song on Soundcloud.
You can find Yonatan Gat on tour now, some shows with our favorite of Monteal and Deerhoof.

I would imagine Los Angeles' Golden Coast hanging out with Los Angeles' Best Coast in their off time? Golden Coast latest single is called "Futurist" and they were pretty happy to recently play at the Echo for Neon Gold Records' Popshop West (see other event listing earlier in this article).
They reported that "Futurist" was currently #6 on Hype Machine with 40K streams in two day.
East London based Equals (not to be confused with 60s/70s group The Equals or Texas' Equals) has a new song called "Black on Gold", coming out February 12th, on Senseless Records.
Look for the duo (James Low and Ade Omotayo) to play live on February 5th at Sublive @ Proud Camden with Tara Priya and All The People.
Congratulations to Icelandic composer Jóhann Jóhannsson who recently won a Golden Globe Award for his soundtrack work on The Theory of Everything. The work is also nominated for an Academy Award (Oscar), BAFTA Award, and Critics’ Choice Movie Award.
The Theory of Everything Soundtrack is out now on Back Lot Music.
Seattle's Hollow Sunshine just announced an early Spring release on vinyl and digital formats for Bring Gold, the follow-up to the outfit's 2013 debut LP, Held Above (Robotic Empire).
Bring Gold will be out April 2015 on Iron Pier.
