Through 5 critically acclaimed solo albums, 3 albums with her former band the Harpoons as well as creating the original soundtrack for the hit Netflix Original Series ‘Sex Education,’ Ezra Furman has amassed an arsenal of much-loved music. Exploring themes of identity, religion, political angst, love, anxiety, Furman has become an icon for the misunderstood and the oppressed. Her live show has built a fierce reputation with The Guardian dubbing her “the most compelling live act you can see right now.” Furman has also written a book on Lou Reed’s classic album ‘Transformer’ and the relationship the record has with her own life and awakening as part of the 33 1/3 Series. Her new singles ‘Point Me Toward The Real’ and ‘Book Of Our Names’, produced by John Congleton(Angel Olsen, Future Islands, Sharon Van Etten) offers a first glimpse at new material to come.



‘One of the most talented songwriters of the last decade’ – Spectrum Culture



The Golden Dregs might be on the project of just one man, Benjamin Woods, but beyond that it’s a lot of different things. “It’s adopted the guise of a bar-band, a lonely man with a piano, a singer with a backing band, and an awkward and insecure karaoke performance,” says Woods. “I think of The Golden Dregs as a project as opposed to a group or a person. It’s a platform for me to explore different musical avenues.” 

 Through the alter ego that is The Golden Dregs, a modern-day musical outlaw can be observed, as Woods splices his signature baritone vocals with hints of americana, post-punk, and indie rock! 

“A sense of maturity can certainly be detected in the pool of influence bearing on its weather-beaten outlook, as well as its range of stylistic cadences; traces of alt-country, neo-psych and glam-rock coalescing in a skewed trinity that unfolds with tranquil, flowing fashion, furnished with a smooth artistic acumen that proves a rare trait.” – The Line Of Best Fit
