The Golden Rail – Songs from Empty Streets
'Songs from Empty Streets' is the third album by Melbourne based indie-pop band The Golden Rail. The band has deep roots in the Perth jangle pop tradition, and has garnered international acclaim for their previous albums.

"The perfect marriage of sophisticated melodies and soulful lyrics performed and sung by an equally soulful voice. The Golden Rail have risen to the top of the perfect pop charts with songs that Jimmy Webb would be proud of." - Dom Mariani (The Stems, The Someloves, DM3, Datura4)
 
The partnership of Ian Freeman and Jeff Baker goes back to the 80s, and The Golden Rail is the culmination of a 30-year writing partnership between them.  The pair started performing in Perth in the mid-80's in a string of bands either together or as side players in The Palisades, The Rainyard, Header, Summer Suns, DM3, The Lazybirds and recently with The Jangle Band.
Old friend and fellow Melbourne-based Perth ex-pat Kim Salmon says, "The music of The Golden Rail evokes my teenage years like no other band. Deserted Perth suburbs in the summer. Boans Morley. The Purple Ear record store. The Golden Rail brings it all back. This is what Joni Mitchell was really talking about with "The Hissing of Summer Lawns". The sense of lost love as Ian Freeman imagines a ship that might bring his love back looking out from Wireless Hill is palpable. Thing is, he's strictly northern suburbs. Golden Rail's music speaks of a kind of loneliness that a boy growing up in the northern suburbs of Perth could know. We had The Triffids to bring us South of the River, but The Golden Rail speaks to something else. Equally specific and paradoxically universal. Add to this all the gorgeous melodies and arrangements, and I never really had a chance!"

The album is available as a limited edition, translucent orange vinyl, on black vinyl, and digitally. All vinyl comes with a digital download card.
