Gold Soundz is a Toronto-based music and indie culture blog run by Marc Z. Gold i.e. me.

The story of Gold Soundz is long and complicated and involves many people and places.

It began as the blog Grubtunes in 2007. In 2010 it took on its current name and URL and played host to numerous shows and musical series around Toronto. In 2012 however, I moved to Israel to serve in the IDF for a year and a half. While there, Gold Soundz remained in existence, though it no longer played host to live shows, and the posts were considerably more sporadic. Not so easy to blog about indie rock from the Syrian border…

In 2014, I moved back to Toronto. Gold Soundz underwent some changes: it now covers movies and print works in addition to music, and it looks a little different. Some features got cut while new ones came in. But the heart of the blog and its mission hasn’t changed.

If you want to send over some music, books, comics or film for coverage consideration, invite me to a screening or concert, talk about playing shows in Toronto, or just say “great job!”, email marc@goldsoundzblog.com.


(p.s. I also make music as Bulldog Skin and have a geeky tumblr called Crushing On Samus)
