Assembled on the fly (“real-time performative production” according to artist Jon Davis), Ghostband’s “Verdical” is a construction of fetishized “glitch(es) and groove(s)” – individual compositions that transfigure through repetition, syncopation and red herring noises. It’s uncertain whether Davis has tapped into a contemporary mania or synthesized a manic – and, at times, maniacal – electronic sound response to the times. Either way, the album waxes feverish and never wanes, building and razing its pockets of pop catharsis in whims that appear both well-studied and fresh-eared.
