This album is AMAZING. I read a couple of reviews before it was released in Australia and decided immediately to get it as soon as it arrived. The folks at JB HiFi are very used to me calling and ordering albums and are most amused at the spirited reviews I give them.
THIS... from Stith's record label Asthmatic Kitty:
"Heavy Ghost communicates a startling range—from earnest yearning to heartbreak, shimmering hopefulness to the brink of existential despair. David Stith’s ethereal voice communicates the unfathomable—mysticism, the commingling of water and fire, waking dreams, spiritual torment—with such reckless abandon that is rarely seen in many albums, let alone a debut work."
