Toronto expat Allyson Baker has spent five years putting together the debut LP for Dirty Ghosts. However with the sudden departure of Carson Binks in 2011, she was inspired to rethink, rebuild and re-record the songs and, with the help of a drummer, transform Dirty Ghosts’ bedroom beat-box experiments into stage-ready rockers. Featuring 10 original songs produced by Baker, American hip-hop artist Aesop Rock, and Jason Carmer (Run DMC, Third Eye Blind, The Explosion), ‘Metal Moon’ sees the band putting the disco into discord. Using everything from dubby funk (“Shout It In”) to minimalist electro (“Steamboat To Concord”) to vintage Van Halen-esque contorto-riffs (“19 in ’71”), each track showcases the emotional intensity of Baker’s voice.
