Dialup Ghost Ready Empty Houses LP

I really enjoyed I’m Fine, I’m Fine, the debut LP from Tennessee’s Dialup Ghost, but they’ve been relatively quiet the last few years…until recently when they announced Empty Houses. When I listen to their stuff, I tend to think of bands like the Glands or maybe a touch of Elf Power; there’s hints of americana-tinged pop, though they’re kind of obscured by the distinctive approach to the vocals. In the first song below, you get this slow burning brood, almost like a steady stomp through college rock nostalgia. In the second, you get this sort of bedroom fuzz, akin to maybe Elvis Depressedly, only this one calls the “yups” (we can relate!). Their new LP is out on July 3rd.


Wayward Pop from Dialup Ghost

I won’t pretend that I knew of Dialup Ghost before their latest single crossed my computer screen. I’m working to remedy that, and perhaps you will too after listening to this wonderful ditty. There’s a fuzzy layer atop the entire risk, but it can’t disguise the natural hook in the vocals. I can’t quite put my finger on it, but there’s a familiarity to that voice, something that seems oddly reminiscent of early Omaha. They just recently released I’m Fine, I’m Fine, so if this sounds remotely like something you’d enjoy, then go ahead and press play…thank me later.
