Soft Healer | Ghost (Video)

July 23, 2013 at 9:09 am 2 comments

Their Bated Breath readers know my love for the well-crafted EP. The concise nature of the mini-record often makes for the most pleasurable listening because there’s little over-reaching, no filler tracks, and bands get in and get out, leaving listeners wanting more. It’s not always perfect, but it’s easier to get a feel for what a band’s sound is and for what they’re trying to do with their record. Soft Healer’s latest EP opens with the distinctly drowsy folked-out blues of “Ghost”, a song that ends in a terror of screams, trumpet wails, and a total dismantling of the wafting rhythm that drives three quarters of the track. This short record primarily centers around a psych-garage sound, meandering instrumentals give the feel of free-flow playing, echoes, organ, clanks, and dissonance building up and falling away around the lead vocals. You can purchase the record here. Stream the songs at their label, Monofonus Press’ soundcloud page. The video was directed by Jean Pesce, with cinematography by Arlen Konopaki. — David D. Robbins Jr.

This is a guilt-free listening zone. We've built relationships with bands, artists, labels and PR firms to give you the best in new music.
