2004–2017. My solo project/band. Sad songs played with vigor and swiftness; atmosphere, weird synth noises; occasionally funny lyrics. ARMS' third and final record, called Patterns, arrived June 3, 2016 and is out now on Paper Garden Records.
And/or follow ARMS Facebook.
"...the type of confident, assured record that can only come from a band that knows itself...flitting between Leonard Cohen homages and Rufus Wainwright inspirations, [Patterns] is always more than the sum of its parts. It is, immediately, the best album that ARMS have put together. — Noisey
"Fueled by shimmering synths and Goldstein's interest in thoughtful songwriting." — The Village Voice
"...lo-fi but lovely... the tunes are melodic, the production fuzzy and echo-laden, Goldstein's crooned vocals melodramatic and impassioned." – The Guardian
2006–2009. Once upon a time, I played in a devilishly upbeat indie-pop band called Harlem Shakes. We toured all over the country, garnered some excruciatingly bad reviews, and were lucky enough to play some pretty big rooms with several semi-famous bands. It was tons of fun and I will gladly tell you more about in person.
