I missed these guys at NoisePop, but it certainly won’t happen again. One of my favorite albums of 2009, I’m looking forward to catching up with this San Diego-based group while in Austin. The band’s debut album, Ghost, was written by frontman Travis Trevisan during all the free time he had after being laid off from his job. With a self-proclaimed ‘mid-fi’ sound, the album title is befitting of the slacker-fuzzed lullabies it creates. Filled with ambient electronics and intricate layers that give way to walls of crashing guitars, the album is intoxicating.
