Nevada City's The Golden Shoulders' _Let My Burden Be_ is a really fun debut. Adam, the singer writes very clever, catchy glam pop songs that recall and usually appropriate from David Bowie, T.Rex, the Beatles, and the Nazz. This is a very well-done album with a wide variety of styles ranging from phaser-abused psychedelic pop songs to acoustic ballads. This isn't the most original album I've heard lately, but it is
a tremendous amount of fun.
Stand-out tracks: 6,13,9,4,5,12

1. nice stomping beat
2. phased vocals
3. with female background vocals, seems to reference the Beatles' "Don't
Let Me Down"
4. Fun, piano-driven, it kind of sways.
5. Nice interplay between instruments. Some goofy effects. This song
recalls what song? Someone tell me.
6. Acoustic T-Rex glam. With female backing vocals.
7. Rocking. Phaser absue. Nice psychedelic breakdown. Reminds me of the Nazz.
8. Stomping glam, funny lyrics
9. Catchy, bouncey. Female vocals. Definite Pixies-influence.
10. Country music send-up. Clever lyrics.
11. Ballad, lots of pose.
12. A goofy acoustic love song.
13. Overdriven, noisy pop song. Nice bouncey chorus and cool phaser abuse
