Apes:: Ghost Games

Apes fourth LP, Ghost Games, comes out today on Gypsy Eyes, and is the first with singer Breck Brunson. Alien vamped space grooves pulse and churn, as brash guitar and Amanda Kleinman’s exploding keys form a single entity with Brunson’s high end voice box. Follow the madness of “Dr. Watcher,” where varied sections appear like hidden chambers in new atmospheres. No doubt, Ghost Games slams the rock and goes big, especially on the Sabbath infused riffs of “Green Grease.” My personal favorite is the bizzaro circus romp of “Speech Reach,” showing those keys in full atmospheric glory.
