Boomkat Product Review:
Asthmatic Kitty aren't trying to conceal their delight at getting to release this album. Heavy Ghost is the debut album by David Stith, whose songwriting talent was encouraged and cultivated by Sufjan Stevens and Stith's longtime cohort Shara Worden of My Brightest Diamond. Stith is clearly no ordinary troubadour, something marked out early on with the layered disharmony and all round musical chaos of 'Isaac's Song' and its more fully-formed follow-up 'Pity Dance', which combines phantom-like background vocals with strange and adventurous sound designs eventually swelling into an orchestrally-proportioned arrangement that's full of mysterious, classically informed dramatism. The most obvious parallel to make would surely be to Antony & The Johnsons' most recent album The Crying Light. Heavy Ghost is comparably involved with the interplay between thoughtful balladry and more experimental, harmonically challenging elements, all of which comes together with great force and potency on haunted compositions like 'Thanksgiving Moon' or the remarkably ambitious discord of 'BMB'. Heavy Ghost is some debut album, by merit of its sheer originality and invention putting to shame the vast majority of songwriter albums out there. Here's someone worth keeping an eye on... Very highly recommended indeed.
