All in the Golden Afternoon is the brainchild of husband and wife duo Carlos Jackson and Rachel Staggs. Their first release, 2008’s self-titled EP, is an intimate collection of six songs; characterized by dreamy, psychedelic tendencies and vibrant instrumentation, it has since become one of my favourite EPs.

“In the Box” isn’t quite as upbeat as the material from All in the Golden Afternoon, but the reverb soaked piece maintains the breezy atmosphere that the duo does so well. And you gotta love the vocal interplay between Rachel and Carlos. “In the Box” will be featured on All in the Golden Afternoon’s full length album, Magic Lighthouse on the Infinite Sea, due for release some time in 2010. You can hear more at their Myspace page.

looking forward to this full length, i really liked the EP

Damn, I was expecting some sort of indie rock (based on the picture), but I actually like this. If you like these guys I'd recommend looking into the band lovesliescrushing. Very similar, but I'd say their sound is a bit thicker.

Doesn't have enough 'meat' for me

I've listened to that band Trey, they're pretty good. Perhaps a little more on the ambient side rather than the 'pop' aesthetic of All in the Golden Afternoon though.

Possibly. This is the only song I've heard from All in the Golden Afternoon so I'm not sure exactly how similar the bands really are. Another one I'd reccomend (to both of you) is Astrobrite - Whitenoise Superstar

oh, wow! we just saw this. thanks, mike!

"in a box" is not indicative of our "sound". we recently posted the completed full length for streaming while we wait for a release date. http://allinthegoldenafternoon.bandcamp.com
