With their second album Ghostkeeper delivers an extraordinary marriage of noisy blues and pop in a complex and textured sounding recording. Revealing his Northern Alberta origins, the distinctive voice of Shane Ghostkeeper cuts through the serpentine knots of intricate guitar and thumping cave rhythms that punctuate the songs. The result is a mysterious, unusual and nuanced voice, infused with Mississippi roots and traditional folk idioms, invigorated with an ever-shifting collage of characteristically inventive and deliciously off-kilter experimental blues and psychedelia.
