Product Description

Second in Lau's exclusive "Vs" collaboration EP series. Triple BBC Folk Award winners (Best Group 2008,2009,2010) LAU have long since been known for their forward thinking and adventurous, non traditional approach to folk music so teaming up with avant garde producer and electronic artist Adem (Domino / Silver Columns) was a natural step for them as artists when they decided to make a series of EP's (of which "Ghosts" is the second). Each EP showcasing the different influences to their Lau sound. Adem had been a fan of Lau's music since attending a gig in 2009 and they had numerous links via engineers, fellow musicians and artist friends on the Scottish music scene. The "Ghosts" EP was recorded at Adem's London studio in late 2010.

Liking both Lau and Adem I thought this would be just my thing, but I found it frankly a little dull and underwhelming, and neither "side" seems to shine, with the whole thing appearing a little joyless.

(The Lau vs Karine Polwart "Evergreen" EP from the same series is a much more polished, moving, and successful collaboration).

Brilliant, new slant. What a fantastic band, with moving lyrics and a great sound. Catch them live! I saw them play this at Shetfest.

Haunting... 30 Sep 2013

This album is probably for a more refined listener than myself, being new to the folk genre. That being said, autumn is setting in and I'm craving a broodier sound. I find myself strangely attracted to this album. Having played it much more than the other albums lately, this is unlike anything I've ever heard and I'm building my own special relationship with it.

The whole album sounds like the namesake, and is like being in someone else's weird dream. Ghostly ambient impressions fade in and out, switching moods and character, like finding shapes in a snow storm. Sometimes the atmosphere is warm and inviting, other times lonely and sad, and in the case of "Mr Timothy", made me scared at night. Even a more colorful track like "Imporsa" has an intangible element to it. My favorite is "Jargonaut", a beautiful track which brings feelings I still can't quite place. Overall, the tracks are of an ethereal form and never stay in one place for too long.

For those who enjoy discovering unique music, this album is a worthy discovery.
