Minus Story...

If memory serves me correctly (and it often does not) the last time I made mention of Minus Story was when they released their uniformly excellent EP Heavn And Hell early this year. In a lot of ways Heaven And Hell was a classicly Jajaguwar release: quirky, interesting, unpredictable and very unique. The band liked to say they used a "wall of crap" technque when recording.

The band's new record No Rest For Ghosts is set for an October 11 release. The new record has taken everything good about the EP and expanded it. The whole thing is still covered in varied instrumentation oddly configured, but that's the charm. Not to mention that the record alternately rocks and weeps in perfect measures. The whole thing is still anchored (or upended depending on your view point) by Jordan Geiger's thin warble of a bird call voice. No Rest For Ghosts is not a knock your socks of right out of the cellophane wrapper album. No, it defiintely asks a bit of the listener, but, man, the rewards for repeated listenings are huge. This is one of my favorite releases this year. Keep an eye out for my Popmatters review.
