Ghostigital

Six full years after bombarding the world with their second album; the teutonic and brilliantly chaotic In Cod We Trust, Ghostigital are well and truly back. Comprised of “art of noise” blood brothers, Einar Örn and Curver Thoroddsen, the time has been well spent in various sonically challenging projects but first and foremost recording their third album, Division of Culture & Tourism. Here, the dynamic duo take their genre-bending, visionary noise-maelstrom to yet another level, assisted by a potpourri of “cultural tourists” including rappers (Dälek, Sensational), guitar gods (King Buzzo from noise-rock crunchers Melvins), art punks (David Byrne of Talking Heads fame, Alan Vega from seminal 70’s band Suicide) an alt-rock sideman extraordinaire (Nick Zinner from The Yeah Yeah Yeahs) and a brit pop maestro (Damon Albarn). To top this of, the legendary Icelandic experimental/noise group Stilluppsteypa opens the album with their own tune, especially written for Ghostigital. The album was recorded in various states in the USA and in B109 in Reykjavik. It was mixed in New Jersey by Alap Momin (Dälek),
