  • Description

    Holy Ghost Party is the Baltimore-based duo of Zachary Utz and Dave Jacober. Bayou Music, their first release on Ehse Records, showcases the duo's ability to improvise suspiciously-structured compositions. Influenced equally by early 20th-century Delta Blues, 1970s kraut electronica, and Indian Ragas, Bayou Music is blue collar psychedelia, a naïve but skilled mutation of single notes into swampy disarray. While the music consists only of guitar, drums, and vocals, Bayou Music subverts the derivative cliches of "rock and roll" by annihilating the analogue sounds with heavily distorted effects. The result is a mindless meltdown of classic anti-riffing and instrumental indifference that drifts aimlessly downstream.
