Loving Former Ghosts at the moment. It’s the collaborative project of Freddy Ruppert featuring Zola Jesus, Xiu Xiu’s Jamie Stewart and Yasmine Kittles of Tearist. And we all know how much I love EVERYTHING that Zola Jesus does.
Take a look at the video for lead single ‘New Orleans’ which does advocate smoking (BOOO) but which is aesthetically and lyrically beautiful. “It’s my fault, I fell in love in the first place.” and “ If you need the sea, take it with you.” Tear.
Bleak. Haunting. Heart-felt. Expansive. Radiating. Emotional. Endless. Frantic. Sad. Intense. I’ll be onto this when it comes out.
