Acid Ghost has just released a new album, “I Want to Hide My Face & Die.”, and I really, really like what I hear
d. Heavy smoking little blue pill • “Could you describe your sexual problem?”.
The album can be put into so many different genres, – and it somehow plays like a movie or a book or a fictional story, with nice little soundbits of conversations, monologues, field recordings and diary entries inside and inbetween the songs
. “A story about some guy falling in love with a girl”, it says on his Bandcamp page, so I guess the story-thing is intentional
If I have to pick genres, dream pop, indiepop and shoegaze are probably closest to describe this
. It sounds really good, and that is what is important, isn’t it?
Acid Ghost is a project from San Francisco, with Ace Barcelon as the only member, and he gets some help from his friend Mike Mendoza on drums
. He has released a lot of music on his Bandcamp, – several this year in fact, – and you can get all of them for a total of just 5 dollars now, including the latest one. You should buy it all
. Very nice music on all of them.
(BTW, One of the tags he has picked for his music on Bandcamp is “mac demarco is overhyped”, and I kind of agree with that.)
