Regarding Ghosts

I am excited announce the next W+D release is coming soon from one of my favorite new (to me) bands, Spooktober. Spooktober are two rad dudes based out of Athens, Ohio, and they make killer casio garage punk that's at least 75% about ghosts n other spooky topics. Their debut LP on Gnarly As I Wanna Be kicks hard from top to bottom, and I can't wait to put out their next release. Keep your eyes peeled for more news on this, plus other upcoming releases.

Also, a brief roundup of reactions Guilty Ghosts' excellent Enigma Variations has gotten from around the internet-o-sphere: thanks to virtual friends at The Decibel Tolls, OMG Vinyl, Sonic Masala, Hammer Smashed Jazz, and The Road Goes Ever On. Many kind, interesting, and varied words have been written, from "one minute plucking at your heartstrings, punching you in the face the next," to "wring[ing] emotion out of every note, every drone, and every ghostly sample." And there are still copies available! Check the releases page above to pick up one of your own.
