Daily Download: "Northern Lights," Ghostigital

Published June 6, 2006 7:01AM (EDT)

Ghostigital is the vehicle for Einar Vrn, best known as the oddball male vocalist in the Sugarcubes -- you know, the guy whose occasional, spastic interjections you had to tolerate between Bjvrk's sublime melodic flights. Vrn's shtick is much more effective left to his own devices, allowing him to develop a potent atmosphere: This is deeply paranoid music, as a spooked- and spooky-sounding Vrn babbles semi-nonsensically over a claustrophobic beat.
