Album Notes
Travel is the 2nd EP from Oakland/SF band Gosta Berling. It continues the band's exploration of British post-punk and American indie sounds featured on the debut release, Everybody's Sweetheart. The stories on Travel are inspired by old films, newer films, Billie Holiday and sleepy emotional states. "Across the Lake" begins the record with a melodic driving mid-temp first-person tale from the point-of-view of Danny, one of the teen lovers in the 1991 Australian film, Flirting. Song #2, "Your Gables Green", uses driving post-punk guitars and Joy Division-like bass line to tell of the love found and love lost between Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks. Billie Holiday is the subject of "On Holiday", told from the point of view of one of her many acolytes and followers over a musical bed of arpeggiated guitars. The epic "Last Flight" is based on the 1931 film of the same name, a story of wounded WWI vets who console each other in a Paris bar. The sparse, sensitive and melancholy "Bed" closes the EP.
