UC Exclusive Stream: Max Gowan – NC’s Lo-Fi Champion

Max Gowan is a 19 year old musician from Raleigh, North Carolina and “Mass Transit” is his latest record, the newest in an expansive back catalogue which is as astounding in size as it is in quality.

“Mass Transit” sees Gowan breathe life into a highly saturated guitar pop scene, with sheer creativity and forward thinking approaches that instantly grab the listener’s attention. Delicate vocals melt beautifully into heady and lush instrumentation, creating a sunny albeit somewhat wistful soundtrack as we come into summer.

“Avent Ferry” is the second track on the album and it’s a lo-fi pop gem, an up-beat banger with subtle walls of guitars and dreamy vocals. You can hear it below.

“Mass Transit” is available now on Little L Records, you can purchase, stream and download it for free here.
