Ghosts of the Great Highway

1LP
Sold out
$31.98
Vinyl LP pressing. An album as good as Ghosts of the Great Highway should never go out of print. Ghosts continues- even fine-tunes- the work Kozelek did with his former band, Red House Painters. These songs are virtuously stoic Americana- all shimmery guitars, measured tempos, malevolent moods, and wandering melodies. His voice sounds like Neil Young's, especially in the effortlessness with which he hits the high notes then returns to a lower, earthier texture. Ghosts is a travelogue of sorts, speeding through the Midwest and the West; in this sense, it's the male equivalent to Lucinda Williams' Car Wheels on a Gravel Road, especially in the imperfect mirroring of physical terrain and emotional geography. The band Kozelek assembled for Ghosts- Anthony Koutsos (Red House Painters), Tim Mooney (American Music Club), and Geoff Stanfield (Black Lab), along with a few guests- ably but subtly bolster his lyrics and vocals, generating a steady clip that never flags. The result is an album as hypnotic as highway divider lines whizzing past. Includes original bonus track "Gentle Moon (Acoustic)."
