Exhibiting modestly more complex textures & less twang than his 2014 debut, Ledges, Noah Gundersen's second full-length album, Carry the Ghost, offers an increase in personnel & mixing by Phil Ek (Father John Misty, Guster), resulting in a slightly edgier, more indie folk-sounding l&scape.
Still profoundly intimate but less whispery overall than Ledges, the solemn-voiced singer/songwriter still takes it down to a regretful murmur on "Silver Bracelet" ("Kissing my mouth like you wanted to/Back before the money took its toll") & for much of the critically self-examining "Selfish Art" ("Most of my songs are true/Most of my songs are due to some broken people/So I could write a single"), a rangy acoustic-guitar ballad with the potential to be a show-stopping encore on the road. "Empty from the Start" isn't as quiet but rather elegant, with female harmony, simple arpeggiated acoustic guitar, & eventually piano ("This is all we have/This is all we are/Blood & bones no Holy Ghost/Empty from the start"). Alternately, songs like "Jealous Love" & "Slow Dancer" feature a full b& with electric guitars & keys, & projected vocals. "Halo (Disappear/Reappear)," also with full b&, sounds like it was captured live, with feedback, an immediate-sounding rhythm section, haunting harmonies, & a booming electric guitar solo that eventually drowns out Gundersen's own wail. "Heartbreaker," too, builds slowly & ends in vocal & instrumental anguish. To say the album is introspective & melancholic may be an understatement; it's an intense listen that requires one to be in a particular head space & would not function well as background music. However, while Carry the Ghost is a sullen work, with lyrics that deal head-on with reality, & processing rather than wallowing, Gundersen hits a beautifully wistful sweet spot in tone both lyrically & musically.
