Jessie Early swooped out of Nashville a month ago with a captivating electropop debut named Heart, and at the time, we found out that she already had plenty more gems to supply us with as she prepares to release a debut EP. She returns with misty luscious, windy sweeping pop on second single Holy Ghost, a breathy enchanting number with a glowing warmth reminiscent of the 80′s. My excitement for debut EP Wild Honey builds after this Fleetwood Mac meets Haerts like second offering. The EP is set to arrive on March 31st. You can purchase Holy Ghost as a single from iTunes in the meantime.

In case you haven’t heard, Holy Ghost!’s Alex Frankel has launched a new solo project, and he makes a dapper dazzling entrance with an EP named Negative Space. The title track off that record is a thoroughly enthralling fusion of nu-disco, synthpop, and electro funk. Negative Space struts confidently, drawing us in with snappy beats, neon synths, and spacey funk. Alex Frankel’s Negative Space EP drops tomorrow, September 30th. He’s also on tour right now with Classixx and Neon Indian through the end of October. Stream the Negative Space EP in full on Soundcloud.

King Shelter, a band who describes their own verdant indie rock as “salad rock”, has had their hooking cruncher of a tune Holy Ghost remixed by fellow Southern California outfit Little Wolves. It just so happens I’ve been wondering what Little Wolves, a duo made up of long time collaborators Samuel Jacob and Ronnie Watson, have been up to lately. They break several months of silence with this indie electronic remix pf King Shelter’s Holy Ghost. Little Wolves applies on a coat of glossy sleek veneer. While the original is more jagged and rowdy, Little Wolves’ Holy Ghost haunts with its blusterous and solemn approach. This Holy Ghost is pensive and moody, yet beautiful and ethereal. Its vocals dance about metaphysically,  darting to and fro like the very ghost the song beseeches. Head to Soundcloud for a free download of the remix. The original is off of King Shelter’s debut EP, Failure.

Here’s one I caught on the interwebs the other day and have been waiting for it to go off exclusivity so I could share it with you. Earlier this week, I had the pleasure of catching José González on tour in San Francisco, and he was incredible, with his signature gentle voice and amazing pastoral songs. Well, surprise of all surprises, guess who’s remixed José González’s Let It Carry You? None other than Brooklyn synthpop and disco purveyors Holy Ghost! José González and Holy Ghost!? It’s spectacular! It’s disco José in full on Holy Ghost! styled buoyant synths glory! The remix is off Holy Ghost!’s remix collection, Work For Hire, out next week on legendary DFA.

One of the most surprising remixes to have come out today has GOT to be this remix of Katy Perry’s Birthday…. by HOLY GHOST! ! !? Do I place another exclamation mark at the end, when the first one is part of the band name? Hmm… Anyway, I sure didn’t expect the Brooklyn nu-disco outfit to choose a Katy Perry song for a refix, but here we are, and there it is. It’s as funky fresh and dance ready as we’d expect from the excellent act. Can they remix all mainstream pop music? That would be great, thanks.

Both genius producer/musician Blood Orange and Brooklyn nu-disco/synthpop duo Holy Ghost! put forth new albums this year that I’d consider on my top 50 albums list of the year. Dynamics and the recently released Cupid Deluxe are great full lengths that will be listened to and remembered for many years to come. So, it’s another match made in my heaven when I saw that Holy Ghost! did a “bootleg”, or remix, of one of my favorite Cupid Deluxe songs, the Samantha Urbani (Friends) featuring You’re Not Good Enough. The popping tune gets an even more club floor friendly revision by the dance floor filling Holy Ghost!.

Holy Ghost! covers Drake’s Hold On, We’re Going Home

Obviously, there are several tunes lately that are getting covered by EVERYONE, and I mean, EVERYONE. One is Rihanna’s Stay. Another is Drake’s Hold On, We’re Going Home. If any band or musician’s going to join in on this party, they’d better have some new angle or some new cool approach to add to it. Well, you can count on Brooklyn synthpop duo to do just that with their version of Hold On. They take Drake’s red hot song and add lots of disco sheen to the track, creating quite a delightful indie dance tune.
