    A terrifyingly gorgeous album that exudes a sense of eeriness and duskiness, that is in itself unique and magical. Heavy Ghost lives up to its name, and DM Stith has made a great first impression on the independent music scene.

  1. Much like the title of his debut, Indiana’s curious ringmaster Stith is a contradiction in terms. Don’t be put off--he’s a contradiction worth losing yourself to.
  2. Like a futuristic remake of "The Wicker Man," it is all splintered beats and frosty light-night soul, and at best, as on 'Pity Dance,' quite remarkable.
  3. Even if Heavy Ghost doesn’t feel fully unfurled--or if it unfurled for too long, with all those years spent gestating--Stith still continues to demonstrate his symphonic talents and deep care for texture and timbre.
