You know what’s great about tapes? They’re pretty cheap and they’re often even more limited than vinyl. Tootoosis’¬†GHOSTS has the smallest tape run I’ve seen yet, coming in at 15. This was released almost a month ago and surprisingly, there are still some copies you can snatch up. The phantasmic black and white cover and the archaic nature of the cassette pair together well with¬†GHOSTS – much like¬†agua de jamaica¬†and tacos al pastor, or sweet potatoes and cinnamon.¬†GHOSTS is ghoulish, but not so much in a horrifying way. I’d say it sounds campy, but that’d be doing the album an injustice. “Ethereal” would be the best word to describe this thing; it’s quite brooding. For a little under $8 US, you get 35 tracks which sounds like a good deal to me. I would like to¬†geek out at the fact that there’s two tracks on here named “ghost dub” and assume the artist is referring to Ghost in the Shell, but I think that’d be reaching. Check out¬†GHOSTS below via the Bandcamp player below and see what you think of it.
