Ghost Story – Self Titled
I’ve been listening to this band for a while now, and I’m not sure why I haven’t featured this album yet. It has some of the typical post-hardcore/emo sound, but there’s a lot about this album that helps it rise above the stereotypes of the genre. The album is grungy, heavy, and very imperfect, and I mean that in the best possible way. Too many bands of this style polish their albums to a point where the recording is a completely inaccurate depiction of the band’s live sound. On “Ghost Story,” the sound is organic, real, and honest, even if though that means that not every little hit and change sounds perfect.
