Ghostland Observatory

Ghostland Observatory has posted one of their new tracks, Dancing on My Grave (click to download the Let There Be Vinyl Remix), from their upcoming album Robotique Majestiqe on their myspace page. They played this thumper at their Ghostland at the Opera show at UT’s Hogg Auditorium towards the end of their set and it stuck in my head.

They are scheduled to play the Austin Music Hall on Feb. 29th and have sold the show out with a month to go. While the price of admission is a bit high ($32 before fees), you do get a copy of their new album. I’m sure it will be a killer show and I’m truly happy for all their success. They’ve got a great sound and their live show with the lasers and all is pretty intense.

Quick back story, the company I work for, Roxwel.com, hosted a SXSW party in 2005 on the roof of Light Bar. This was just before Paparazzi Lightning really started taking off and I ran the setup of the show and the mixing board for them. I’ve also worked with them at one of the Texas Rollergirls roller derbies. Both Aaron and Thomas are very professional and take their shows very seriously. Aaron, the singer, is super nice and definitely has amazing charisma. Thomas is more of a mad scientist and doesn’t come off as friendly, but from what I can tell he’s really just very focused and concerned with the sound and visuals of the show regardless of the circumstances. Thomas also used to be a rave promoter back in the late nineties and I actually attended some of his raves. I’m sure that’s where their love of lasers come from.

On that note, here’s Ghostland’s set from ACL this year, hope you enjoy it as much as I did and remember to support the artist by buying their ablums.
