Another in a string of truly excellent albums to be released in early 2021 is the third LP from Hull, U.K.’s The Gold Needles. Out on JEM Records, What’s Tomorrow Ever Done For You? follows up 2019’s acclaimed release Through A Window. The Gold Needles are very typical of the talent on the JEM roster right now in the respect that their sound is grounded in a timeless devotion to melody. You can hear obvious influences from the ’60s — but probably just as many from the ’70s and ’80s. The band — made up of Simon Dowson (guitar), Dave Burbage (guitar, keyboards), Mark English (keyboards), and Carl Slaughter (bass) — recorded What’s Tomorrow Ever Done For You? while under COVID lockdown last year.
