ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Pitchfork's Grason Currin: Decoration Ghost makes wiry indie rock that would sit well with one of those early Merge Records catalog numbers. The perfect "Horizon," for instance, sprints and lurches and charms, its harmonies and handclaps and hard-angled guitars turning three minutes into an anthem.

10LISTENS.COM: Having stumbled my way through the learned-haze of college watching the bands previous to this conglomeration, I was ready to have my expectations met. I was not ready, however, for them to be exceeded.The Haze of Wine and Age is simple, but by no means orthodox or scientific. Though nothing is too complex or exceptionally lithe on first listen, these songs are emotionally triggered and inspired. Each song invites the listener despite being ragged and rocking, and I am looking forward to involving myself more and more with the record, to be sure.

I didn't even know they had rock in North Carolina. Up here in the NW, we're knee-deep in insularity, and we like it that way. Apparently I need to break out of my proud little bubble more often. This group of four dudes from the NC have shown me the way, and it's paved with a solid-state rhythm section, a lead guitarist who adds unending melodies to the already catchy-as-heck progressions, and a vocalist that sounds like - and this is a good thing - he's been spending his time listening to a bunch of old Portastatic LPs and really getting into the energy behind them. And speaking of energy, this band's got some. Whoever recorded this thing did a fine job, because it retains all the fervor of a live recording, while still keeping the sound crisp and urgent. It's simply a darn fine album, and it looks like these guys are just getting started. Get in on the ground floor, and you can say you heard about 'em before anyone else did.
