Ghosts Hang Low
Fast Speaking Music NYC
3.5 out of 5 stars
Somewhere between the Brian Jonestown Massacre and Sonic Youth, Max Davies found the muse of his album Ghosts Hang Low.
Davies recorded the album in a mish-mash of old school live tracking and contemporary digital overdubs. In doing so, he manages to capture the vibe and style of the aforementioned lo-fi wizards, but the release features a crystal clear, layered recording that allows the experimental electronic folk to soar.
The title track is a smartly written acoustic ballad that expands to an alt-country styled waltz and back again, all the while revealing that there is more underneath these tracks than the obvious audible tones.
