"On Golden Hill mini-album marks a new direction for formerly folksy SF/LA-based band, THE FINCHES. Now, with electric guitars, four-part vocal harmonies and eclectic percussion, front person CAROLYN PENNYPACKER RIGGS leads the listener to darker reaches, without abandoning her endearingly unaffected vocal quality or unique style of musical storytelling. On Golden Hill weaves together eerie a'Cappella (’Follow Me’), ambiguously perverse laments (’I Loved You as a Child,’ ‘Hannah’), and bouncing pop easiness (’Steve's Song,’ ‘River in Edo’), to create a cinematic tapestry of song. Packaged in creamy Arigato pack adorned with a beautiful linocut from Pennypacker Riggs herself. The Finches will tour America this Spring as a five-piece. Their new stage performance includes homemade masked and costumed characters."
