Much like the Thompson Twins were not twins, the Goldberg Sisters are not in fact sisters. But the group does include one famous Goldberg: Adam Goldberg, the actor best known for his work in Entourage
, A Beautiful Mind
, and countless other films and television shows. However, Adam perhaps most flaunted his indie roots, and hinted at his hipster side career, when he absolutely stole the show with a memorable, hilarious role in the Flaming Lips' brain-melting cult flick Christmas On Mars
While many actors have vanity musical projects, Adam's Goldberg Sisters is the real deal. Stemming from a 2009 recording project called LANDy, which included contributions from the Flaming Lips' Steven Drozd, the Sisters' new self-titled debut was recorded with Earlimart's Aaron Espinoza at Los Angeles's The Ship studio, and is an ambitious, psychedelic, Space Echo-laden indie opus that should please fans of the Lips, Mercury Rev, and Elliott Smith.
Adam recently shot three exclusive one-man Goldberg Sisters performances for Yahoo! Music at his hidden-away Los Feliz home, and the clips capture all of his album's analog-meets-Echoplex ambient magic. Clearly he's been hanging out with the right musical entourage as of late.
