MP3 “Is There A Ghost” Debuts On MySpace
posted by August 28 at 15:06 PMon
As if to answer Zwickel’s plea, Band Of Horses rolls up today with a MySpace-exclusive preview of the opening track to their forthcoming sophomore disc, Cease To Begin. Even better, the boys failed to uncheck the MySpace player’s “download” option, meaning you can stick “Is There A Ghost” into your MP3 player of choice. This is high-octane quiet-loud material that won’t shock fans of “The Great Salt Lake,” though is it just me, or is lead singer Ben Bridwell trying his damnedest to sound a bit more nasal and avoid the old-hat MMJ comparisons?
Also worth a note: To make it wholly clear that the guys ain’t from here no more, they’ve gone and changed the MySpace profile page’s city to Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina (though the album art’s semi-similarity to the SC flag might’ve also been a clue). Gah, why not just change “in a relationship” to “single” while you’re at it? F’in heartbreakers.
