why we love this

Golden Brown patches together a quilt of nostalgic introspections and otherworldly curiosities. A comforting companion for looking outwards and towards the sky.

about the cassette

'Gems and Minerals' sees Stefan Beck taking a deeper dive into the lush and pastoral instrumental terrain that he has been refining over the last decade releasing music under the Golden Brown moniker. The earthbound and celestial visions are more vivid than ever, as seen through the lens of Beck’s cosmic-inflected Appalachian folk stylings and deftly dappled production.

The pieces that comprise 'Gems and Minerals' began to take shape during 2020, shortly after the pandemic began to permeate many aspects of life. Beck says of the time, “music became a sanctuary and a safe space in the gloom and trauma of last year (both my wife Sara and I continued to work in person throughout the pandemic, so there was a lot of anxiety around that. Playing music in the morning every day helped set a good tone and intention for the day before venturing out).” The pieces were also largely inspired by the local Colorado landscape and the sense of refuge taken in that space.
