"Ghostland Observatory is not a band, but an agreement between two friends to create something that not only heals their beat-driven hearts, but pleases their rock ‘n roll souls." -GO's myspace
It's finally here, last week Ghostland's 4th album, Codename: Rondo, their first since the somewhat disappointing Robotique Majestique in early '08, was released. No letdown this time as each of these 10 new tracks shine in their own unique way. Packed with the deep synths you've heard from them before, "Body Shop" introduces a cool rotation between that synth and lead-man Aaron Behren's vocals. "Glitter" (link to a quality video) and "Miracles" are stand outs, but I haven't found the need to hit the next button on any track. Below is the September trailer with the beginning of the identically named single "Codename: Rondo." Also, stream the entire album from their myspace page. Enjoy.
Dec. 17 in NYC @ Terminal 5, see you there
