Joel Robert Melton - 'Shadowfingers pt. 1'

This achingly ethereal release from Fresno's Joel Robert Melton could be the result of The Microphones and Amnesiac-era Radiohead twisting together and unleashing a new breed of lovely unto the world. Eerie and at times transcendent, Ghost weaves lo-fi textures together with purpose and gravity. Melton knows how to seep into your head and expand it to the outer layers of the atmosphere, up where there are more stars than air. Great stuff.
