Sarah Shook & the Disarmers, "Good as Gold"
Sarah Shook & the Disarmers' forthcoming new album Years (out April 6th via Bloodshot Records) is one of 2018's more intriguing new releases. Following quickly after her 2017 debut Sidelong, Years shows Shook to be an artist who isn't content to sit still, and who's more than capable, too, of growing artistically in a short period of time. New tune "Good as Gold" is an expert distillation of Shook's talents: sly wordplay, gritty arrangements, and vocals that find the sweet spot between country and punk. A cleverly produced accompanying lyric video cobbles together classic film footage, with more than a few scenes echoing the song's refrain, "You're as good as gold, and I'm as good as gone." B.M.
