To paraphrase a famous Philip K. Dick title, do punks dream of electric sheep? If Crooked Ghost's latest album Skeleton House is anything to go by, the answer is a definite yes! Starting as an acoustic side-project of frontman Ray Clark, Crooked Ghost evolved into a haunting quartet that bellows into the soul while making your spine dance with glee. One-half Radiohead, the other half 90s-era Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, the band waltzes along your eardrums as they appease the goth hidden within your very essence. To tantalize us even further, Crooked Ghost has summoned a playlist worthy of any Shameless Tuesdays (specifically this one, of course)!
Here's what Crooked Ghost has to say about this week's playlist, with Ray Clark taking charge of putting it all together:
This is Ray from Crooked Ghost, and I will be sharing a Spotify playlist of 20 of my favorite artists that I think should be on everyone's radar. These are all bands and artists near and dear to my heart that we've either had the pleasure of playing with, seeing live, or are old favorites that are still putting out great records today. This playlist showcases several of our local friends from the Asheville, NC area who are just too brilliant for words, as well as a couple tracks from our new record Skeleton House. I had a lot of fun chosing these songs, so I hope you all enjoy these selections as much as we do. Thanks Boston Bastard Brigade for letting me curate this playlist!
