Ranch Ghost are a phenomenal garage/psych group out of Nashville who just announced that their new album Lookin will be released on July 1st via Rough Beast Records. The band have also shared the excellent first single “Turfin” via SoundCloud and you can stream it just above! Ranch Ghost has one tour date on the books at the moment, opening up for the Alabama Shakes at the Mud Island Amphitheater in Memphis this summer, but expect plenty more coming soon!
Lookin is bluesy, psychedelic garage rock at its finest, and was recorded almost entirely live and produced by Mitch Jones (Fly Golden Eagle, Thunderbitch, Majestico) at his studio in East Nashville. This album was Ranch Ghost’s first endeavor into recording the sonic incarnation of each of its member’s thoughts, inspirations, and creative energy. The band has been audibly molded by the vibrations of Link Wray and Captain Beefheart’s Magic Band, while the influence of Nina Simone, Hank Williams, and Miles Davis remains slightly obscured underneath the murky surface.
