Ethan’s debut album, home recorded and mixed, is a very personal song cycle of longing, rage, and redemption.
“Gold’s emotions are sent into a whirlwind as he asks for salvation and tries to stay motivated as the devil stares him down and his relationships are damaged by sex. The album has a childlike emotional purity to it, but that’s not to say that it’s immature or naïve. Instead, it’s rooted in the fact that children don’t obscure their hurt by anger or bravado or even mock diffidence, as adults often do…. The emotions on Songs From a Toxic Apartment are delivered with an unfiltered, glaring legibility.” – Pitchfork
