To be honest, I'm quite surprised I even bothered to check this record out. On paper, it looks like the epitome of hipster bullshit: a "supergroup" comprised of Freddy Ruppert (This Song Is A Mess But So Am I), Jamie Stewart (Xiu Xiu) and Nika Roza (Zola Jesus). To make as lazy a comparison as possible, Former Ghosts sound like Ian Curtis fronting a darkwave band with indie glitchtronica/noise bits thrown in here and there. I'm not gonna front like I know much about the current state of this genre, but this is definitely good music for walking to the shop to on those cold winter nights when you need another bottle of cheap vodka . This is the record Eisold wish he had made instead of that boring Cold Cave nonsense.

Here's a link I found on Google:
