Rural Ghosts

Rural Ghosts’ new EP is stream­ing from their Bandcamp page. Despite the plural form in the name (and also in the title), this is a solo project by Erik Neilson from Portland, ME.

Every track seems to be designed to be …well, haunting. The lush reverb to the abstract back­ground noises and the fragile oohs and mmms, they evoke all the feelings associated with darkness, solitude and distant memories.

For me, this music is firmly rooted in the more seri­ous alt rock of the 80s and early 90s, like The Church or Echo & the Bunnymen, and that’s good news to me.
