“Whether you call them psychedelic, spacey, experimental or strange, A Ghost Like Me only has one priority: To make music that awakens one’s consciousness. Asheville’s instrumental rock band, A Ghost Like Me, is now offering trips that extend far beyond the ears; it is music that stimulates inside and out. “The New Paradigm,” the band’s first full-length album, released in spring 2011, is more than a composition. It’s an experience...”

"While to some the prospect of an instrumental ensemble might automatically mean prog rock or jam band, repeated listens to The new Paradigm, the band’s recently released full length album, reveals so much more..."

“Local “instrumental space rock band” A Ghost Like Me recently released its debut album, The New Paradigm. The group includes members of Crystal Kind, Stankface, Blue Stone and The Dark Shave. Fans of these bands probably have some idea of what to expect: Psychedelic themes, driving percussion, fanciful solos and songs that tend to run well over the six-minute mark. “Threshold” opens with a churning bassline and spacey burbles, a more menacing contribution to the Moonraker score, perhaps. “Japan” delivers funk, dynamic melodies and interesting play between guitars and synthesizers. “Song For Gaia,” a shorter track, shows a different side of A Ghost Like Me, leading with echoey flute and birdsong. “lucis ressurrectio” also uses flute, sounds of dripping water and distant bells — a dreamy soundscape, more temple or massage studio than rock club. But “Bridging The Gap,” The New Paradigm‘s lead song, illustrates A Ghost Like Me’s rock roots. ”

"The New Paradigm is more than a catchy title as the paradigm in question is the state of the Earth on a spiritual level ... not just social which is the common focus of bands these days. Of course, being instrumental the details are left to the listener to ponder. Is there such a thing as space rock left, particularly space rock with a cosmic message? If so, what is space rock three decades on since prog-rock ceased to rule the airwaves? It's a welcome mix of groove rock, alt rock, funk, dub, jazz & electronica ... it's also the experience of a band that started as a recording project & moved to a live band. It's a tight funky affair that gets rid of wandering moments. AGLM have grown up since the last time we all met. They've honed in their sound & also pushed themselves musically into new directions & audio experiments..."
