Kaleidoscope World

Golden Glades sendet in kaleidoskopischer Manier: Auf Grundlage konstanter musikalischer Mittel bilden sich immer wieder neue Klangformationen. Das Bild legt nahe, dass der eine oder andere Song der heutigen Ausgabe in Richtung Psychedelic Pop geht, aber auch die bunt schillernde Albernheit hat ihren Auftritt.
