Album Review:
Holy Ghost-Holy Ghost

New York's Holy Ghost! released their self-titled full-length last week and provide some evidence that they know the electro-pop formula well.    Apart from the snappy beats and synth work hearkening back to OMD and others of their ilk, the HG boys don't add any distinctively fresh flavours.   Holy Ghost! have been remixing many substantive artists, like Moby and their label's headmaster LCD Soundsystem, during the past few years, which has aided their ability to afford the very expensive rent in New York city and perhaps understand the nuts and bolts of song construction.    However, with all the great music being released these days, the album is quite remarkably unremarkable, aside from Hold On, which they released as a single 4 years ago and finally appears on this long player.     The only other oddly interesting moment is Michael McDonald showing up in the closing track Some Children.    Apart from those two moments, the only other excitement would be the one, presumably, found at the exclamation point at the end of the band's name.
