***Over the last decade, Marlon Rabenreither, known as Gold Star, has established himself as one of the most gifted cult songwriters of the underground Folk scene. On albums such as Big Blue, Rabenreither's lovelorn lyricism and languid melodic sensibility brought forth a weatherd strain of Americana that felt both timeless and uniquely his own. Catching the attention of numerous Indie music titans, Rabenreither has since collaborated and toured with artists the likes of Mazzy Star, Phoebe Bridgers, and the Black Lips. Headlights U.S.A. marks a monumental artistic evolution for our troubadour. Gone is the sparkling, Laurel-Canyon jangle of Big Blue. Alternatively, Rabenreither employs propulsive drum machine grooves, angular guitar passages, and beaming synthesizer textures to concoct a euphoric, New-Wave influenced soundscape.
