Through the magic of Pure DSD recording, Gasoline Lollipops presents what is perhaps their most intimate album yet. Known throughout the state of Colorado for their rollicking performances that get people dancing, the Front Range-based Country-Americana-Rock band wrote three new songs and rearranged seven previously released songs for this album, creating more spacious, acoustically-oriented listening experiences to delight the audiophile community and loyal fans alike. While the “GasPops” are true to their signature style on the dark and bluesy, electric harmonica-laced “Devil’s in the Ace” and country-rock shuffle “Fast Train” featuring a no-holds-barred electric guitar solo, Nightmares is also brimming with moments that will tug at your heartstrings, like the tender mandolin and piano solos by Don Ambory and Scott Coulter, respectively, on “Midnight Dance.” Songwriter and frontman Clay Rose is in top form on his distinctive vocal performances, letting his vulnerability show on intensely personal songs like “Mary Rose.” Democratically produced by all members of the band, you will fall in love with each one of these rootsy arrangements, expertly engineered by Jay Elliott.
Now available as a 24-karat gold CD master in addition to the SACD version and downloads.

In an interview that's equal parts intimately personal and pure Rock n' Roll, Clay Rose of Gasoline Lollipops discusses his new album, Nightmares, on Octave Records.
Nightmares represents a departure from the band's signature rollicking production, making way for acoustically-oriented and spacious arrangements. In this interview, Rose talks about studio vibe, *not* being a narcissistic punk or folk singer, LSD-fueled brainstorming sessions and the haunting story behind his song, "Mary Rose."
