Artist of the Day: Ghosts
The reason Ghosts are worth mentioning here, despite having only just appeared on the scene, is because Judge is just so gosh-darn-impossibly sexy. "Sniper Wolf" - with its repetitive, breathless female soundbites on top of a dank techno beat - is the most obvious example, but elsewhere the album treads the forlorn yet sentimental path of artists such as Swarms and Void Pedal beautifully. To finish this off, even the album cover is explicitly sexual, making Judge a particularly hard EP to pass by... mmmmm...
Where Ghosts go with this vibe is uncertain, though I doubt I'm the only one hoping that they try to define a sound that's more "their own" with their next release. If that never happens, however, it really isn't too much of a problem seeing as the quality of their two EPs so far is so great. Certainly worth checking out, anyhow, seeing as both are up as "name your price" on Bandcamp.
