HomeMusicReview: The Gossip The Gossip “Self-Titled” (K Records) For some reason Im getting this 2000 Gossip release now, but it doesn’t matter. This ep sounds as fresh and bad to the proverbial bone as it did 2+ years ago, which is saying a lot given the short lifespan of most hipster indie bands these days. Wailin, nasty, blues-damaged punk. Sassy and sexy and just plain wonderful. Beths vocals are truly marvelous, Nathans guitar playing is a down and dirty blast of swampy joy and Kathis drumming is spot on perfect. Yeah, I know youre supposed to dance, but this is still pretty damn good to just sit and listen to.
