 Gigi Love - Turning to Gold

Gigi Love
Turning to Gold

Gigi Love = Gina French + Lucinda Williams + Sheryl Crow

You know, it’s always nice when people write old-fashioned handwritten notes. Thanks, Gigi. Bittersweet alt-country goes down smooth as warm buttered rum, or better yet, buttered rum Lifesavers. Everything on this album is so perfectly written, executed and produced that there’s nothing left for me to criticize. Gigi is touring Europe this spring and was featured on Mountain Dew’s latest compilation. Dan Thomas from Tolchock Trio played drums on Turning to Gold, and I heard a crazy rumor that Bill Frost played some of the guitar parts. My favorite tracks are “Baja Blue,” “Dali on Fire” and “Goodbye Arcata.”Gigi Love
