How is the rarities album?
At one point there was a CD + Rarities download option, but they took it away for some reason. That's what I wanted.

It's hit or miss. The tracks we have not heard are good, but most of it's demo's of songs we have already heard.

awesome! bazan did something similar when he was making strange negotiations - he didnt do a kickstarter or gofundme per se - but via his website he offered a tshirt that said 'i helped bazan make an album' if you donated a certain amount - the icing on the cake was seeing my name in the liner notes

he did something similar when his tour van was totaled - if you wanted to help fund another one for him you got a shirt that said 'i helped bazan buy a van'

Album of the year!!!

Also, he had been playing some other tunes that did not make the album but were indeed recorded for the album. Says he has something special planned for them.

He has been playing some living room shows along the west coast and if you were lucky enough to get a ticket you also get an exclusive download to the song "Close to Heaven" which was recorded for the album but didn't make the final cut. I was able to obtain the song from a buddy that made a show and it is indeed a great tune that would have worked on the album. If anyone want's the song just PM me with your e-mail address.

Here is a YouTube clip of it being played live.

Pretty good review:

Jeremy Enigk – Ghosts
self-released/PledgeMusic



As Jeremy Enigk continues to remain elusive, any move he makes (with or without his legendary ’90s band Sunny Day Real Estate) is a big deal. SDRE reunited in 2009, attempted a new album but scrapped it, and released just one song from those sessions in 2014. The following year, Jeremy started playing solo shows again and now he has finally released his first album in eight years, Ghosts. It follows 2009’s OK Bear, and like that album, it shares some traits with the art rock of SDRE’s third album How It Feels To Be Something On. The first three songs, “Light and Shadow,” “The Long Wait Is Over,” and “Amazing Worlds,” would especially fit on How It Feels. Ghosts is even more beautifully produced than OK Bear though; it’s the kind of album that presumably took so long because Jeremy waited until inspiration hit and really made sure he saw each meticulous detail through in the studio. He had been playing solo acoustic at his shows, but Ghosts is heavily layered. It does use acoustic guitar on nearly every song but sometimes a distorted electric too, as well as gorgeous strings and piano, precise drumming that’s minimal at times and thunderous at others, and tons of atmosphere. And while OK Bear was sort of a “return to rock” album for Jeremy, Ghosts finds time to touch on several styles from throughout his career. He revisits The Fire Theft’s uplifting piano balladry with “Victory,” the orchestral sounds of The Missing Link and World Waits with “Empty Row,” and the hushed folk of Return of the Frog Queen with “Ancient Road.” Sometimes, those styles cross paths within songs. Album closer “Days Design” opens like a Frog Queen-style folk song but ends with the orchestral swirl of Missing Link/World Waits. “Onaroll” brings back his scream and is probably the closest to SDRE that this album comes, but it also finds time for an ambient interlude and a quiet folky passage. When he does bring disparate sounds together like that, he makes the transitions sound seamless.

A year later and I still love this album so much. It's probably Jeremy's best album overall too.

I really need that "Closer to Heaven" song! That live version is amazing, so I'm desperate to hear the studio one. Does anybody have the download they can send me?

That would be awesome, thanks! I don’t see a way to PM you (maybe because I’m new here?) so I friend requested you. Maybe I’ll see the PM option then.
