Boomkat product review for:

glass ghost - Idol Omen

Brooklyn duo Glass Ghost (comprised of ex-Flying members Eliot Krimsky and Mike Johnson) prepare to release their new album Idol Omens, featuring guest spots from Here We Go Magic's Luke Temple, Joan Wasser of Joan As Policewoman fame and Sharon Von Etten. That line-up of contributors really doesn't give too many clues as to what the record itself sounds like however, and much of Idol Omen carves out a kind of avant-garde interpolation of Dilla-inspired wonky beat designs and indie-rock compatible psychedelic soul. Particular standouts include the excellent 'What I've Seen' - sounding like a hip-hop inflected Beach Boys song - and 'Mechanical Life', which stands out by merit of the contrast between Krimsky's singular falsetto and the tight-knit electronic funk backdrop.
