A History Of Ghosts, Mixcloud & More

It seems to me that it takes both dedication and motivation to write something on a regular basis like a song, a poem, even a blog. So I finally got some motivation in the form of “A History of Ghosts”, the new CD by New York’s own, Bobtown.

“A History of Ghosts” reveals the most ambitious songwriting to date for this group. Each of the four songwriters Karen Dahlstrom, Jen McDearman, Katherine Etzel and Fred Stesney) excel in a uniquely different way, yet still remain true to the overall theme of the project. The songs are a study in opposites. The dark and forbidding lyrics are a stark contrast to the heavenly vocals. Don’t fear though, it’s not all dark and gloomy! Case in point: “Kentucky Graveyard”, which could be the theme song for Disney’s Haunted Mansion!

The final track “Stitch in Time” is a bouncy Americana Meets The Staples Singers song about living the best life you can, while you can.
