Ghost Town

Remember when I told you about the new Parts & Labor album? If not, you should look into that one. It's out now on Jagjaguwar. The singer for that band, Dan Friel, also put out his first full-length solo release this year. Ghost Town is an experimental electronic effort made with "cheap drum machines, blipping remote controls, and preprogrammed toys."

Imortant Records says "comparisons are tough, but perhaps if In the Aeroplane Over the Sea was sculpted out of distorted noise you might be getting close." The first track that caught my attention on this album was "Desert Song," an electronic rocker that sounds a lot like something you might hear from Dan Deacon. Tiny Mix Tapes reviewed Ghost Town right here, and you can get it in digital form at the link.
