Holy Ghost!: Escape From Los Angeles

Some six years since NYC-based outfit Holy Ghost! (aka Nick Millhiser and Alex Frankel) released Dynamics, the duo has announced a new LP in Work. From it comes “Escape From LA,” a glittery synth-heavy bop that is wildly satisfying. Full of disco influences, the song—and all other tracks from the record—were made using just a Yamaha CS80 and Mini Moog, but the result is rich and luminous. Millhiser says, the set-up wasn’t “necessarily the bare necessities, but what would make for the most interesting limited palette. David Bowie didn’t have every fucking synthesizer on earth to make Low. He had two. And that’s one of my favorite synth records of all time.” Work is officially released 21 June.
