A Ghost Story
Street: 08.21
Creature Double Feature = TaughtMe + Widowspeak
Dreamy, ambient folk is performed throughout this piece. The experimentation with a wide variety of instruments—most notably with the alto sax, marimba and flute—is crafted subtly, which materializes the vocals (by Davis Johnson) into haunting wisdom. The cover art, with the silhouette of a psychedelic blue wolf howling at a pink moon in swirling colors of paint, invokes a pretty accurate depiction of the musical contents of A Ghost Story. The arrangement of the songs feels like an ascent up a mountain—slowly building up momentum to reach the summit of “Holy Temple” with a hiker’s high, while the other songs climb up or down the peak with a calmer energy. –Brinley Froelich
