Singles Club: That Ghost

I don't know about y'all, but the paragon of the one man "bedroom" wayfarers will forever be Badly Drawn Boy. But following in his lo-fi footsteps is Ryan Thomas Schmale, or That Ghost.

In this pair of prettiness, Schmale shows himself willing and able to envelop his listener in a hypnotic wave of summery slow motion. The songs are cooler than the other side of the pillow, pretty as a picture, and each has a little bit of a subtle shimmy as well as a sort of isolation behind all that liquid languid languor. He's perhaps a bit more Ernest Greene than Damon Gough, but either way, I'm liking what I hear from
That Ghost. You just might dig it, too.
