Albert Bagman – Give Up The Ghost – Audio

On the 27th of October the US minimalist-rock creator Albert Bagman releases the LP Straw.

Albert Bagman - Give Up The Ghost

Albert Bagman

A ten track album full of varied ideas and texturing as once again Albert Bagman delves deep in to the well of creativity to deliver just over half an hour of loosely nailed guitar and electronica flighted with distorted vocal which holds the listener in rapt attention to ensure not missing any of the eddies and ripples of sound whilst Straw threads through eerie, melancholia and the experimental.

Always a pleasure to return to a musician who has featured regularly since introduction back in 2015.

The second track on the album is Give Up The Ghost – a song of open architecture.

Earlier this month the LP Sweet Gems was released. A dozen track album takes the listener back to the ’60s with its easy gait and analogue patina which melts in to the room as though a hot-knife in butter.

The third track  – Florentin – has a distinctive merseybeat reference point as it trots through the room in a multi-coloured tie-dyed kaftan.


Sweet Gems – Steve Schuster is available on iTunes.*

The latest track to surface Different Lights of very different texture as gone are the menacing undertones of the music to be replaced with a lighter air in a calming flow of electronica and keys which leaves the listener feeling the stresses of the day easing from their shoulders.
