radical face - Ghost
Ghosts is the solo debut of Ben Cooper, the 24-year old Florida resident who makes up one half of Electric President, Morr Music's very own superstars of electronically enhanced indie pop. For his solo work, Cooper focuses more centrally on the essence of his songwriting, stripping away the more explicitly electronic instrumentation, which only proves to emphasize that devoid of all that laptop chicanery Cooper's songs are a powerful force unto themselves. 'Welcome Home' is like a revision of The Shins' 'New Slang', its echoing wordless vocals providing the song with an instantly memorable chorus. Someone give this man Zach Braff's phone number. Better yet is the positively cinematic 'The Strangest Things' whose creaking, homely production quickly explodes into a string-laden modern trip hop epic. Despite all being recorded in Cooper's Jacksonville Shed, throughout the album there are such moments of expansive, even grandiose orchestration. Just take a listen to 'Wrapped In Piano Strings', which on the one hand takes its melodic cues from Paul Simon while reaching Animal Collective-like heights of eccentric pop bliss by the chorus. Lovely stuff all round.
