Get Acquainted With: Former Ghosts


Former Ghosts is a sort-of powerhouse of lesser known stars in the indie music world, comprised of This Song Is A Mess But So Am I's creator Freddy Ruppert, Xiu Xiu's Jamie Stewart, and Zola Jesus's Nika Roza. Normally, when a group is comprised of members of other bands who excel in their own rights, things can get a little watered down or big-headed, but nothing like that occurs within the confines of Former Ghosts. The music is intensely thought out and even easy to listen to, which is something to say when considering the music these folks have made on their own. The group has a full-length record set to come out some time this year on Upset the Rhythm Records, but for now, there are three current songs on the group's Myspace page. You own it to yourself to check out these songs.
