Ghost Woman, Baby Jey and Stripmall
Desert rock and prairie punk hit the Eddy with Ghost Woman, Baby Jey, and Stripmall.
If you peer across the cinematic Alberta badlands and listen closely, the heavy tremolo of Ghost Woman’s desert rock can be heard soaring across the arid plains. Captivating and distant with an audible sneer, this is what you would find playing in a roadside dive on some sun-kissed Lynchian daydream.(via Sled Island)
Baby Jey are the soundtrack to expansive landscapes that evoke warm melodies and cold memories. You can hear them when you stare into the sun with your eyes closed, seeing only redness through your eyelids. The Edmonton, Alberta band writes strangely familiar melodies that end up more strange than familiar, marrying earnest country charm with the satisfying complexity of your favorite jazz and pop records. Inspired by the Americana upbringing they never had, their augmented melodies provide authentic modernity to a classic sound.
Stripmall create a dynamic Western-influenced prairie punk that is as delicate as it is aggressive. Reminiscent of a row of shops somewhere between almost and never quite. In the last miles of plastic backlit signage, never where you’re meant to be, but a place you’ll never forget. Stripmall evokes the place where frustration and hope exist. True Alberta contrast where the West meets the concrete.
