Lonesome Wyatt (of Those Poor Bastards) releases another album of great mournful, haunting beauty and the grotesque with 2013's Ghost Ballads.
Like a bad dream you don't want to wake up from, Wyatt seems to be channelling the tortured spirits of a different era with each song. Deceivingly simple folk music creaks into your heart and soul with solemn dread that knows no time, like a Syd Barrett song from beyond the grave. Eerie sound effects linger throughout the record making for a fantastic listen when you're giving it your undivided attention. Do yourself a favor and mosey on over to their official site and pick yourself up a copy of this haunting little album.
