Ghosty: Answers

OxBlood Records [2008]

Fire Drill Review:
Ghosty have been adored in the Midwest indie scene now for several years and Answers is the bands sophomore record. The album is full of melodic and catchy tunes that use all of the group’s collective talents to simply release one solid performance. This band has collaborated with the Flaming Lips and individual members have worked with Rogue Wave, Dr. Dog, Benjy Ferree, Sia and avant-jazz group Snuff Jazz. The bands entrenchment into the music scene when they are not together and the hard work put in when they are has paid off because Answers is worth taking for a spin again and again.

Key Track: "Dumbo Wins Again"

Band With Similar Fire: Pavement

Like A Bad Lie (mp3)
