Holy Ghost! - Dynamics mp3 album
Holy Ghost! is an American synthpop duo from Brooklyn, New York City, consisting of Nick Millhiser and Alex Frankel. Millhiser and Frankel both grew up on the Upper West Side of New York City and attended elementary school together. They were later part of a hip hop group called Automato. Automato's debut album was produced by James Murphy and Tim Goldsworthy of DFA. After the release of the album, Automato "kind of fell apart". However, Millhiser and Frankel kept working on music
Naturally, Holy Ghost!'s second album, Dynamics, addresses that condition by pulling at all the strings its title implies. Their brightest disco/house tendencies, and the deep emotional highs that came with them, are heavily offset with an introspective melancholy or ruminative ambivalence that asks instead of urges. Holy Ghost! put their heart deep in their grooves, where it could be drawn out after repeated listens; feelings that came across as insinuations at first gradually moved inescapably to the forefront.

Produced and engineered by Holy Ghost! at 361 South 4th Street and Plantain NYC Mixed by Holy Ghost! & Chris Zane at Plantain NYC.

When Brooklyn synth-pop act Holy Ghost! released its first underground smash "Hold On" back in 2007, no one expected the title to become a mantra for fans awaiting its debut LP. As it turned out, though, it was four years before Nick Millhiser and Alex Frankel released Holy Ghost!'s excellent self-titled first record. As if making up for lost time, the band is back after a relatively snappy couple of years with its sophomore effort, Dynamics.

Finally, the new Holy Ghost album has arrived! Their self-titled album from 2011 was fantastic (at least to my ears), so the big question of course i. .how does their latest effort compare to their previous work? In short, they thankfully have not strayed from their established retro-synth sound. If you are a fan of Holy Ghost, or a fan of electronic music (especially with an old-school 80s synth flavor), you cannot go wrong with Dynamics.
