Boomkat Product Review:
Simon Joyner has been crafting records for a good twenty years now, and ever since ‘Umbilical Chords’ he’s been putting an unmistakable fingerprint on his particular brand of off-kilter rock. ‘Ghosts’ is his first for a few years now, but is just as epic and arching as you’d expect. Recorded to reel-to-reel it sounds like the unhealthy merger of independent New Zealand jangle rock and 70s US drug-core and is just as unpredictably great as that might sound. If you like your music jagged and served with a pack of 20 Marlborough Reds then ‘Ghosts’ is certainly the album for you.
