Golden's debut album Hallelujah World was released in 2002 on Rough Trade. Featured on the Faultline album Your Love Means Everything in 2002/2004. His second record Revenge Songs was released on Sawtooth/Echo in 2007.

His song 'On a Saturday' appeared in the series finale of the Fox Drama The O.C..

Revenge Songs

A self-described admirer of the idea of creating "modern field recordings",[1] most of the album was recorded in Golden's home in Portland, and all background noise has been left in the finished record. On 'Zero Integrity' an ambulance siren can be heard in the background. Other tracks were recorded in underground car parks, concrete art galleries and at The Magic Closet in Portland.

Hand made limited edition copies of 'Revenge Songs' were made.
