Cool Ghoul’s first TDCed song, “Witch’s Game” was, as described by me, “a shocking 5-minute opus” that “breaks in to a thrashy sort of ode to rock ‘n’ roll.” I expected a similar sort of long form garage rock explosion, “Ghost Song” leans heavily the twang of 1970s country rock spiced up with a surprisingly funky little bass beat and some catchy back-up vocals. To say the least, it’s another step in the band living up to the promise of their three-song EP. Lets all raise our hands if we’re excited for Cool Ghouls. Okay, good. Me too.
Cool Ghouls play the Save KUSF Benefit at Benders with Uzi Rash on 4/20 and then at Sugar Mountain in Oakland with Shannon and The Clams later this month.
Their self-titled debut LP is due out this summer.
