(ghost) – Departure (2013)

This is a quite emotional journey on the wings of soulful, cinematic – and ghostly – electronic music. Sensitive grooves and mysterious layers of obscure melodies are the ingredients of this moods and feelings oriented exploration. It’s like a movie without words, it gives you the wings to fly through an endless space made up of dream and fear fragments.
In a world where half of the humans acting like everything’s just fine and dancing, while the other half are drowning in depression and waiting for Apocalypse every single day, an escape into some wide open spaces like “Departure” it’s like winning a trip to heaven.
“Departure” is the debut album from Connecticut based producer (ghost). Rooted firmly at electronic music’s crossroads where electronic pop, early artificial intelligence era ‘Warpisms’ and experimental electro intersect Departure follows a thinly structured concept in which a protagonist, possibly (ghost) himself(?), escapes a type of confinement in search of freedom or immunity.

Devin Townsend Project – Ghost (2011)

Devin is probably one of the most talented rock artist of the 21st century, he always find a way to surprise us, to explore a new path, to create and share exciting music and feelings with us. And I think we should thank for this. “Ghost” is the closing act of the four piece release started with “Ki” in 2009 and followed the same year by “Addicted”. “Ki” was an exciting incursion into a world of ambiental, jazz, blues and rock blending and “Addicted” lead us into the area of power pop/alternative metal. This year “Deconstruction” and its nine tracks drive us into the contorted, gloomy world of post-metal madness, it was a mind-blowing return to the noisy constructions of the Strapping Young Lad era. As Devin promised, “Ghost” is the mellowest one. And “mellow” is the word that quite fits this material. Read more Devin Townsend Project – Ghost (2011)
