the holy ghost electric show “pisgah”

Posted by gregor on Sunday, November 2nd, 2014

holy

happy sunday fools! we moved this past week so its been a wee bit hectic over in van dyke land. if you follow me on twitter you’ve probably heard some of the many stories i have shared about my old neighborhood, which were sometimes hilarious and sometimes frightening. either way, we are now living in idyllic area of baton rouge.

so, im probably 3 or 4 months behind talking about these gents out of oxford, ms called the holy ghost electric show and, what i believe is their debut, the great american holy ghost record show. ive been really digging into it the past couple weeks. this record is really hard to pin down, sometimes its a pretty stright forward rock record, then there are moments of “where did the hell did this come from?” definitely a lot of influences going on here, which sometimes can mean a straight up mess of a record, but in the case of the great american… they know how to take said influences, and make them their own. definitely a top record of 2014.

buy it via their bandcamp page / follow them on twitter, like them on facebook
