Episode 13 - Outrage
This week, James and Gareth attempt to navigate the murky waters of internet outrage. There are a lot of musicians out there making stupid decisions (intentionally and unintentionally) and there isn't any getting away with it thanks to the ever-watching gaze of social media.

It's a roller coaster ride of soft rock, power ballads, hip hop and pop. So join us for Gold Soundz episode 8! Playlist: Busta Rhymes - Do The Bus A Bus Cam'ron and A-Trak - Dipshits Hall & Oates -...
