"TGIF Hodge Podge"

The band is called Early Ghost, and if the track that I have been listening to is any indication, their sound reminds me of a slightly more mature rendition of The Boy Least Likely To. The track that we received is called “Witch in the Cherry Tree” and as you may imagine from my description, it is not nearly as ominous as the title makes it sound. It is actually a beautiful pop gem that features (what sounds like) a toy piano and contains just enough sugary-sweetness to draw you in without pushing you away. Not to turn this whole day into a PSA for MySpace, but this is another artist in desperate need of friends, as they, like Caretaker, currently have only three of them. And yes, one of them is Tom. In fact, there aren’t even any photos on their page and Google wasn’t much help in that department either. As such, I took it into my own hands to accompany this post with the first result that came up in a Google image search for “Early Ghost.” Because, you know, we like visuals around here. What you see to the left is not in any way official or related to the band, as far as I know anyway, but it is a drawing titled “Early Ghost” from an artist named Hector G Romero. And it’s actually pretty cool. Personally, I think they should use this as the cover art for their next record and give me a shout out in the liner notes. I’ll check with Hector and the guys in the band and let you know how that turns out. For now, just enjoy the track and have a great weekend. - Citizen Dick

EP: EARLY GHOST •We Crossed the Waves (myspace.com/earlyghost)
Since releasing their eponymous debut, Early Ghost could have easily settled in with the Mumford and Sons of this world. Luckily, their new EP ‘We Crossed the Waves’ shows paths into darker, nu-folk territory. Although some tracks share the style of the first record, it’s the more intense, enigmatic songs that stand out. The slow burning ‘1914’ is the highlight, and the medieval tinged ‘Bernardo’ another strong point. Overall, an improvement from their debut, and hopefully the sound of things to come.
