Garrahan’s Ghost: Songs from the Spider Box

March 11, 2012

Songs from the Spider Box, is the very musically clever debut from York, PA based Garrahan’s Ghost. I say musically clever as the Ghosts combine speedy, high energy Celtic rock with a punk/new wave-ish edge (I say new wave as the vocals by Roo Nevin make me think back to that era) and tight musicianship, prominent accordion, fluid and at times jazzy guitars, a bit polka, a bit gypsy, a bit sleazy lounge act, and a bit Irish dance (Ceile) band. Jewels Jig and Houdini Diablo are the most Celtic/Folk/Punk tracks if the clever bit doesn’t scare you off.
