From their website: A whirl of desperation continues to plague the music industry at large as it stumbles to find its way home after a long night of intoxication on the cheap thrills of teeny pop and date rape rap-metal has begun to wear off. Having lost their bearings and watched bands like The Shins, Death Cab For Cutie and The Arcade Fire come out of “nowhere” (as far as they could tell, but we all know better, don’t we?) and wonder what the future holds for them, labels run around waving their checkbooks furiously to sign infant bands who are , more often than not, underdeveloped (or total charlatans) without doing their due diligence for fear that their competitor across the street will move quicker. Silly rabbit.

Thankfully, the panic hasn’t yet spread from the coasts to the relative isolation of the midwest where artists are able to germinate and grow into a fully-realized talent. And it’s the climate of Lawrence, Kansas that has allowed Ghosty to flourish into something special.
