Product Details
'Peanut Butter Blues & Melancholy Jam' showcases Ghostpoet's loveable ramshackle, but hook-laden productions, his lazy baritone and imaginative desolate take on the world - a most impressive statement of intent.

Opener 'Onetwos' is a distorted and warped microphone check which slithers hypnotically into 'Run Run Run' which twists and turns, drawing you into the dark and brooding atmosphere that 'Peanut Butter Blues & Melancholy Jam' is drenched in. The DIY nuances of tracks like 'Us Against Whatever Ever' aids in the intimacy one feels with Ghostpoet, as we embark on a voyage into his mind. Minimal beats sinuously glide through 'Longing for the Night', right into the more intimate affairs like 'Survive It'.

Up next Ghostpoet's debut single 'Cash & Carry Me Home' - an insistent synth line lodges itself in your brain, exemplifying Ghostpoet's raw approach to beat-making, his love of melody; and the charm of his rambled musings on modern life.

The softly spoken 27 year-old has already won over BBC Radio 1 tastemakers Gilles Peterson and Huw Stevens with a free EP entitled 'The Sound Of Strangers' which also hit a hungry online audience and earned Ghostpoet a coveted spot in The Guardian's "New Band Of The Day" as well as glowing recommendations from NME, CMJ, RCRDLBL, URB, Drowned In Sound and The Mercury Prize. 'Peanut Butter Blues & Melancholy Jam' is one of the freshest sounding debuts since Tricky's 'Maxinquaye' - it's as beautifully complex as it is subtle and will command your attention again and again and again.
