Video: Former Ghosts - Taurean Nature
'Taurean Nature' is taken from Former Ghosts' much-anticipated second album New Love, which sees release November 9th, 2010 on Upset The Rhythm. The compellingly dark, goth-tinged project of Freddie Ruppert, with contributions from Jamie Stewart of Xiu Xiu, Nika Rosa Danilova aka Zola Jesus, and Yasmine Kittles of TEARIST, Former Ghosts will be playing with Xiu Xiu themselves this Friday night in The Grand Social, Dublin as part of the Darklight Festival (with other guests to be announced). It's a Skinny Wolves-curated affair and promises to be a superb gig.
Freddie Ruppert has also made a free preview mixtape available on the Former Ghosts blog, and there's some great stuff on it so it's well worth downloading. http://www.formerghosts.com/
On the subject of Skinny Wolves, their latest mix was put together by Children Under Hoof and is absolutely superb stuff: taking in PJ Harvey, Silver Apples, Thread Pulls, New Order covering Keith Hudson for John Peel and a slowed-down version of a HEALTH/Pictureplane remix. Download it now:
