New Music From Ghost Party
From Houston, Ghost Party is an indie psych revival group consisting of singer-songwriter/guitarist McCullough Ferguson, who has shared stages with Roky Erickson, The Brian Jonestown Massacre, and Night Beats as the lead guitarist of Flower Graves (Wallflower Records); drummer Victor Sanchez; and bassist/keyboardist Kendrick Ballard. Ghost Party pays homage to the godfathers of psych rock while advancing the form with a few modern twists and turns. Mixing sunny harmonies, fuzzed out guitars, and vintage combo organs to great effect and recording it to analog tape. Ghost Party seamlessly blends influences such as weirdo melodic pop from the Elephant Six collective, 60s folk gems a la Elyse Weinberg, and French cinema to weave sonic oracles through the ether. Fueled by Farfisa memories and lush double tracked harmonies, Ghost Party exists where human life meets the curtain to the beyond.
Out now, their first single “Severed Hands” was produced by Khruangbin producer Steve Christensen.
“Brings back a smoky psychedelia, laying really low like a bit of rustling leaves in your yard. They build in a nice little plot twist when they hit the chorus, letting the melody evolve into more of a playful boogie or stomp, something that gives off a bit more groove to the genre. ” -Austin Town Hall
