Low Low… return to their lo-fi origins with a six-song cycle of basement-incidentals, humming /flickering guitars, affective harmonies and reverb-heavy percussion. Created in various stages over the course of a year on a 16-track reel-to-reel and 8-track cassette recorder, these songs almost didn’t see the light of day. After months of basement storage, the tapes appeared moldy and smelled damp. Flecks of tape were falling off and volume seemed irregular, leading to a diagnosis of “sticky shed syndrome”. In an effort to save the recordings, the band found an engineer to “home bake” them, preserving integrity long enough to extract the mixes. Coincidentally enough, those experiences of decay, cloudiness and frustrated hope reside strikingly parallel to the lyrical themes in Ghost’s songs.
Cassette sold out - thank you!
