Shell Money is the moniker of Wyncote-based producer/engineer Zach Goldstein. Zach is well known for his engineering skills as studio manager and engineer at Kawari Sound, however, with the release of Family Tapes 89-93, his debut album, his production and songwriting is on display.
Riddled with foundsound home recordings, Family Tapes 89-93, sounds neither nostalgic or celebratory, but somehow autobiographical, …even if the childhood recordings are not. Throughout, the hiss and scratch of two familiar voices provides a foundation for Goldstein to layer synthesizers, samples, guitars and percussion. You really just need to hear it.
Preview Brand New Day below, and hear the entire album this Friday, September 29th, when it is released.
