ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Before deconstructing heteronormativity was du jour on social media, Sir Ari was subverting the dance/pop genre—just check out the jarring vampiric video to the first single “Make My Body Rock,” an electronic/rock/soul smash that could have been a hit if hit songs were determined by the sheer force of its hook. The original version on here of “Play My F**kn Record,” another ear worm, gets treated with remixes by Country Club for its accompanying music video that sees Ari peddling his record naked on the streets of New York City-surely a commentary on the absence of LGBTQ voices on mainstream radio. The second single off this compact concept album is of the “spirit” side with “My Favorite Religion” that takes a page out of the Madonna handbook in its exploration of religious, spiritual and sexual themes. “Over The Internet” pays homage to the funk soul of Hall and Oats and Michael Jackson with a very modern story of finding -and losing – love online. “Out Dancing and “Stay In This” showcase Ari’s proficiency when it comes to the sounds of the clubs, having paid his dues in the New York City Club scene in the 90s. With a guest spot by RuPaul’s drag race season 10 runner up turned Broadway star Peppermint and groundbreaking tran pop artist Mila Jam, “If I Steal Your Boyfriend” sounds like LA Reid and Babyface got together with their contemporary Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis and had a baby. The Advocate named this album as the most underrated of 2011 and its closer, “New York Attitude” says it all, “even when I get no lovin from the place I come from, I still love New York.” Even as history becomes erased with the latest young pop stars who now get to be out and proud from the beginning of their careers, we still love Sir Ari Gold who was there from the beginning when it wasn’t popular to do so, paving the way for the current climate of more love and acceptance of LGBTQ people. Before releasing his fifth album under the collective GoldNation, his fourth studio album, Between The Spirit & The Flesh showcases what Sir Ari does best: soulful hooks, smooth vocals, layered harmonies, electro beats and tackling subject matter that shows even dance and pop can offer sublime subversion.

Packs Born-This-Way Swaager
This out dance-pop artist packs born-this-way swagger. "Stay In This," a pumping jam heard on COUGAR TOWN, and the soul-kissed "My Favorite Religion" are synthful standouts. - People Magazine, June 13th 2011
