BLACK FICTION
GHOST RIDE
HOWELLS TRANSMITTER

Unorthodox lo-fi jangle that sounds like a pool party at the The Mama's and The Papa's house with Dinosaur Jr. playing on the deck, San Francisco crew Black Fiction are big on building atmosphere judging by GHOST RIDE. This 11-track techno folk offering is loaded with hushed vocals, manufactured beats, and chill bass grooves, but also surprises with intriguing instrumentation like banjos and xylophones on tracks like "Carry Him Away". Digging deep to the roots of blues and folk and bringing its melody lines along for its hazy hayride to the unknown, this dreamy endeavor is as ambitious a listen you'll get from psychedelic folk rock unit.
