Locomotive Ghost’s celebration of the seasons continues with Autumn

E-mail Print

Calgary’s Locomotive Ghost are doing something pretty innovative—  writing four song EPs for each season of the year.


 Their third effort, ‘Autumn’ is a really laid back affair featuring plenty of vocal harmonies and interesting arrangements.


 The EP opens with the lilting Beatlesque “More Than I Could Ever Tell,”  which is powered by a pop tinged piano  that could come right offClick here to hear Locomotive Ghost of Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Heart’s Band until they have a quasi rapped verse near the end of the  song.


The vocal harmonies are beautifully done throughout.


The second track ‘ Imperceptible’ is a little more upbeat and has a slightly, lilting Celtic feel which also sounds a little like more serious Bare Naked Ladies, but with a  sweet, bluesy guitar solo.


The third track ‘ Equinox’ features more of those beautiful, relaxing harmonies and pure vocalization which reflect a cool Autumn breeze.”


 The last song ‘At Least I’ll Know Tonight’ has  hypnotic  vocal harmonies reminiscent of the Byrds and even a flute.
