Song Premiere: New Tune from Glass Ghost

glassesThe folks in Dirty Projectors and Here We Go Magic have been crafting arty pop music for some time now, and several members of said groups have united again to continue their work as Glass Ghost.  Tomorrow the band will release their album Lyfe on the heralded Western Vinyl, and it’s being met with much anticipation…from us especially.  In this single, you’ll find those arty elements, including little touches of sampling and quality lyrical writing.  There’s creativity in the songwriting that you’re not likely to find in other corners of the indie genre.  Be sure to pick up your copy this week.

New Reworking by Sharon Van Etten & Glass Ghost

After SXSW we raved and raved about Sharon Van Etten; the combination of beauty in appearance and voice just floored us.  Looking around the net yesterday I came across this amazing gem over at Westerny Vinyl, which is a reworking of Glass Ghost‘s “Like a Diamond” with Sharon singing the vocals.  Originally the song came out in 09’ on Idol Omen, but this reworking is incredible (not that the original wasn’t).  Sharon’s vocal delivery here is exactly the reason we came to fall for her, contrasted perfectly with stark instrumentation from Glass Ghost. What a perfect track .
