New Music from Chief Ghoul

chiefI was really into the spooky folk tunes that Chief Ghoul gave out last year, and in fact covered him quite frequently. Now, as he preps a brand new album, Damned, Lee Miles, has unleashed a single to get you interested. It’s almost a jangly country ballad, using steady strumming support Miles’ voice, which often takes on those darkened tin-can tones. He’s like the poorman’s Tallest Man, and in that, seems like a lot more soul in every note he sings. Keep an eye out for news on the LP; you’ll likely find it here.
