Cory Hanson – ” Ghost Ship “

Posted: May 26, 2023 in MUSIC

Cory Hanson’s forthcoming LP “Western Cum” is one of our most-anticipated projects of the summer, and the final teaser single “Ghost Ship” only solidifies that it’s going to be one of the best rock ‘n’ roll records of the summer—maybe even the year altogether. Continuing to build on Hanson’s vivid, gonzo journalist approach to beatnik storytelling, “Ghost Ship” is a mystifying quasi-ballad oozing epic, mid-century shredding. The guitars Hanson and his band employ here are sexy, heavy and waft through the air like a controlled burn. “In a travelog written by seven dwarves / I’m gonna tell you all I’d forgotten at the bottom of the world,” Hanson harmonizes in the chorus.

The western themes of Cory’s previous “Pale Horse Rider”, made flesh in the form of an electric band, lashed with gleaming guitar strings to tracks whose gnarled, proggy path only climes to the top of the listener’s Compulsion Index. From steel to synth, from old-school ballad to nu hardcore and ambient, Hanson and band run the table of modern rocks.

Bring forth thy “Western Cum”.
