Golden Blondes

Joseph P. Markiewicz (ex-Lillydale) is a true Renaissance man, but one blessedly free of the clichéd tones of self-importance that descriptor implies in a contemporary context. A fixture on the Ballard scene, he is a fashionable old soul, having been recently profiled in City Arts for his sartorial sensibilities and fondness for all things vintage. He’s also a deeply gifted songwriter with a graceful sense of how to slowly build a pop song in grandiose fashion, but without gilding the lily beyond recognition. His newest project, a dirty-pop-rock trio christened Golden Blondes, is a slightly grittier, dance party-driving affair that includes Micah Simler of Shim on bass and former Lillydale drummer David Lopez. With Naked Feel Goods, Mostly Dimes, Charles Leo Gebhardt IV. HANNAH LEVIN
