Goldfinger - ‘The Knife’ Cover

And the award for the best guest appearances on an album goes to...

What do Josh Dun, Mark Hoppus, Taka Moriuchi and Travis Barker have in common? Well, they’re all awesome (obviously), plus they feature on this, Goldfinger’s first album in nine years – recruited by scene uber-producer and frontman John Feldmann.

From the barbed, Blink-182-esque pop-punk of ‘A Million Miles’ and grouchy, tongue in cheek call-outs of ‘Am I Deaf’ to sun-drenched ska numbers like ‘Don’t Let Me Go’, this is a mix of music for lounging by a pool, and tearing up a sweaty basement venue.

Throw in the bizarre dentistry fantasy of ‘Orthodontist Girl’ and calypso bounce of ‘Liftoff‘, and you’re in for a weird and wonderful ride. Saxo-phobes need not apply.
