PREMIER GUITAR features MARK PORKCHOP HOLDER

Let It Slide marks the first time since his Black Diamond Heavies days that Holder has dedicated himself to the band format, after years of predominantly performing solo. He enlisted Chattanooga-area music scene veterans Travis Kilgore on bass and Doug Bales on drums, both of whom play on the record and have been touring with Holder.

Holder’s recent struggles provided fodder for one of the album’s strongest tracks, “Disappearing,” the lyrics of which Holder wrote on a napkin while he was in the hospital, gravely ill and longing for a visit from the woman he’d been seeing. The lyrics paint a haunting picture of a man at the end of his rope: “They say that all things must pass / Well I hope that it’s my time at last / Come and see me child, I’m fading fast / Disappearing, carry me away.” A propulsive drumbeat creates a sense of urgency, as does Holder’s guitar work, which features a lot of flat-fifths that heighten the sense of doom. – READ THE FEATURE HERE

★★★★ 4 star review of GOSPELBEACH “Another Summer Of Love” from ALL MUSIC

Another Summer of Love’s not a million miles away from what GospelbeacH tried to do on their first album — Petty and the Dead certainly share large chunks of musical DNA — but here the energy and sense of purpose the group displays make it a much more cohesive and entertaining record, filler-free and radio-ready. It’s one of the most focused and hooky records Rademaker has made in his long history, and it’s far more together and poppy than one may have guessed after hearing the band’s first album. – READ THE REVIEW HERE

Great review of GOSPELBEACH “Another Summer Of Love” via WHEN YOU MOTOR AWAY…

The foregoing doesn’t mean that Another Summer of Love is a nostalgia piece. This is timeless left coast rock, and it will never be unwelcome to those who love guitar pop. The stories are vivid and true, the performances top-notch, and the variety reveals a songwriter with a comprehensive knowledge and love of guitar pop. I wouldn’t have been surprised to see Chris Hillman, J.D. Souther and the Poco boys in the credits. But Brent and company are so good, they didn’t need them. – READ THE REVIEW HERE

☮GOSPELBEACH’s new album “Another Summer Of Love” is out now!

“Another Summer Of Love” available on Vinyl, CD w/bonus, and Digital.

“Whether you call it power pop, folk rock or alt-country (at times all of these terms apply) GospelbeacH are bursting with melody, with terrific harmonies to boot. This is straight-up genius song writing: honest, brilliantly played and superbly produced.” – Louder Than War

“Aesthetically, what sets this one apart from their debut, Pacific Surf Line, is the sound: more 70’s FM rock than 60’s AM gold. Rademaker’s writing continues to evolve becoming tighter and poppier with a warmer more classic rock feel, nodding heavily towards early power poppers Cheap Trick, Big Star and fellow Floridian ex-pat Tom Petty. Not to worry, those sweet vocal harmonies are still there (along with the cascading guitar solos)…” – Aquarium Drunkard

“Those of us who value quality can bask in its revitalizing, sun-drenched goodness.” – Shindig! Magazine

“…the album is like a lost Heartbreakers classic made just before Petty went solo on Full Moon Fever in the late ’80s.” – All Music

“GospelbeacH succeeds wildly in capturing authentic-sounding analog atmospheres, and slight fuzz buffers the sunny acoustics throughout to form a hazy, ethereal bubble around the entire record.” – The Bohemian

“…a pure Southern California, retro and dreamy roots-rock vibe.” – Yahoo Music

“The new record continues to build on the psychedelic folk rock of the group’s debut, Pacific Surf Line.” – Relix

“…loaded with sunny harmonies, tambourine and exuberant guitar. If there is any song that will get you in the mood for another summer of love, this is it.” – Glide Magazine

“…an album that, with its familiar chords, washes of keys and pristine harmonies, gives you the sensation you’re overlooking a canyon vista, nestled in fleece, watching another spectacular SoCal sunset.” – Buzzbands LA

“The calendar reads mid-June and I’ve got the perfect summer record for you, Another Summer of Love.” – Dagger Zine
