Ethan Gold

Songs From A Toxic Apartment

New Label

Ethan Gold’s album Songs From A Toxic Apartment is out now. The L.A. based songwriter and composer plans to release a series of official videos over the next 3 months to support the release.

Ethan Gold wrote a two-page story at age four called “The Dreammaker,” about a tiny miner who chiseled into people’s heads at night and placed dreams and nightmares inside. As a self-taught singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist, Ethan has been doing with music what his little miner did ever since, making cathartic, deeply affecting songs written while dreaming or in the altered state of insomnia.

Ethan’s debut album was created while living in a corroding flat in Los Angeles and composing film scores (Helicopter; Adventures of Power), playing in other bands (Honey Brothers; Gold Brothers), producing and arranging albums for other artists (Elvis Perkins’ acclaimed Ash Wednesday), and writing a sprawling, 75-song ultra-violent rock opera in an attempt to confront the worst of the male psyche. Escaping the toxic building, Ethan chose 12 songs from his rock opera demos to color and shape into something new. On an $800 recording rig wired next to the hot plate in his mini-kitchen, Ethan sang, performed all instruments, engineered, and mixed the record, lovingly sculpting into it the urban sonic tableau of crows, helicopters, and storms he recorded from his window. A journey through quiet terror and yearning, ferocity and sensuous redemption, this is his deluxe debut album Songs from a Toxic Apartment.
