Bassett - Ghost Hwy

.
The duo Bassett's Ghost Hwy release is truly a beautifully haunted work. Comprised of multi-instrumentalist Josh Bassett and bassist Tak Ozaki, this musical pair creates folk music with a slightly Eastern, psychedelic vibe running through it.

This project's title track begins with spooky bird sounds and sitar-like acoustic guitar accompaniment. Then, in a faraway tone, Bassett sings about rolling down the ghost highway. It could be physical journey, a psychic one, or both. Whatever the case, it involves chasing dreams. "Spirit Friend," on the other hand, rolls to a folkish groove, built once again upon lovely acoustic instrumentation, which sounds a little like Soundgarden might come off if unplugged. "Wingtouch" also carries with it a grunge-y feel, particularly due to Bassett's blustery lead vocal.

It's Bassett's musical moodiness that's most striking. This act knows how to create a strong sonic feel, and then stick with it. These auditory journey signposts will leave an indelible mark on your memory, all for the better.
