Gathered Ghosts Feat. Andreanna – 'Mundo'

Gathered Ghosts (Craft Spells’ Javier Suarez) released his second EP ‘Fluttering So Sweetly’ early this year. Much of the release features the dreamy vocals of his partner Andreanna, including the closing track ‘Mundo’. Javier has sent across a new video for the tune, a good example of how DIY videos can be fun with a little creativity.

Gathered Ghosts – 'Sweet Swan'

Brimming with bold 80s sounds, delayed guitars and broken beat electronics; Gathered Ghosts creeps up on you with unassuming sincerity. The dreamy vocal lines often mask the detaching lyrics. ‘Sweet Swan’ is one example where even the clouds and the trees “have a lot going on”. Gathered Ghosts is the work of Javier Suarez (guitarist of Craft Spells) who releases his second EP ‘Fluttering So Sweetly‘ on January 14 featuring guest vocalist Andreanna. Shaky Snakes recently teamed up with Andreanna for the song ‘Yr In The Sky‘ (more of her tunes here).

In Javier’s words, “Gathered Ghosts was done in my parent’s basement in Pullman, Washington using guitars, bass, Logic software, my girlfriend’s autoharp, an ocarina that my parent’s brought back from Argentina, piano, some micro-Korg and a couple of other things. This music is special to me so i thought I’d share it in case it may become special to someone else.”

Craft Spells recently released a new video for ‘Your Tomb’ – check it out below…
