The Indie Song of the Day comes from Oregon musician Michael Dole – also known as Empire of Gold. Dole’s music is best described as a mix of lo-fi and alt rock and he’s been inspired by lots of grunge artists.
Dole was born in San Diego but he grew up in Tecate, Mexico. His childhood was marred by tragedy when his father was shot and killed by his mother when he was just 8 years-old. After that, Dole was adopted by his Aunt and moved to Sandwich Illinois. His childhood and his experiences shape his music – it’s extremely deep on a lyrical level.
Empire of Gold has a wealth of material over the years, including his most recent album called The Devil Is in the Details.
The song we’re featuring from EoG is called “Lying Through the Cracks in Your Teeth” – you can listen to that below:
