Monster Movie - Everyone Is A Ghost (2010)

Everyone Is a Ghost is the latest fuzzy downer-pop showcase from Monster Movie–the London-based duo of Christian Savill and Sean Hewson.
 
Formerly of English shoegaze-cum-post-rock greats ... (more) Slowdive, Savill began building his own library of hazy feedback with Hewson in 1989, first as the Eternal, only to return from seclusion in 2000 as Monster Movie. Over the years, the pair has been slowly developing their synth-kissed wistful and utterly distinctive sound.
 
Everyone Is a Ghost weaves that signature sound through ten tales of misspent youth and past loves and losses remembered. Perhaps their finest realization yet, each track on Everyone Is a Ghost is a perfect pop gem, somehow distilling the sprawling and infinitely expansive floorboard-gazing fuzz-wall of Slowdive into ten perfectly-baked and intensely catchy pop songs played out on guitar, piano and a range of synthesizers. Throughout there are elements of the perfected-popsheen-turned-experimental-atmospherics of David Bowie’s Low, the male/female vocal harmonics of My Bloody Valentine, and Grandaddy’s electronica-laced sunny pop nostalgia, while buried deep in the duo’s carefully-crafted, fuzzed-out sonic mire are flashes of the dramatic ambiance of Antony & the Johnsons and Neil Young at his most love-lorn.
 
Everyone is a Ghost features guest appearances from Ryan Graveface (Dreamend, Black Moth Super Rainbow) and Rachel Staggs (Experimental Aircraft), and artwork from esteemed Rhode Island based illustrator and musician William Schaff, who has previously set ink to paper for Godspeed! You Black Emperor, Okkervil River, Songs: Ohia, Kid Dakota and more
