Thanks to a warm and prompt response to an email plea to Mr. Damnwell himself, Alex Dezen, I wanted to share this acoustic version of the undisputably wonderful song “Golden Days” with you guys.
This is the incarnation of the song that’s used in the trailer for their movie of the same name (opening in a few short weeks at the Phoenix Film Festival). Alex writes, “I’ve always been kind of partial to this version too. P.S. Feel free burn, post and disseminate anyway you like. This music belongs to everyone.”
Now that’s a refreshing sentiment not heard nearly enough.
From the rich slowburn opening that takes its time easing in, this version stuns (but I still adore the original, in fact, the whole album):
