Hope in Ghosts is Ted Flynn, St. Petersburg, FL-based guitar anti-hero. A veteran of the L.A. and Chicago indie rock scenes, Hope in Ghosts previously released an EP that garnered immediate press comparisons with Slint and Seam. As with the EP, his debut full-length album, All your Departures, is predominantly instrumental, using differing guitar tones, layers and arrangements to sonically represent the cycle of emotions involved when losing someone, leaving, or being left.
Guest appearances on All your Departures include vocal contributions from label-mates electro-pop wunderkind Jon Monteverde (aka XYZR_KX) and Jarrod Whittington of Brooklyn-based Autoharp, as well as the tremendous drumming of Chicago-based Chatty Cathy's Alan Takaoka.
**New song posted!
While the official release date of the new record, All your Departures, is still a couple of weeks away, that doesn't mean I can't offer up some exclusive tracks for my nearest and dearest social network peoples. So yes, there's a new track in the player called "Sorry Saint." It's a demo that didn't quite make it on the record. You can download it and everything. Think of it as a b-side - a future rarity perhaps? Get it now or you'll have to wait 20 years for the monster box set (with free HIG lunchbox). You can also grab it here.
