Karen Elson: The Ghost Who Walks
Unit price / per
This incredibly elegant and haunting album features 12 songs - 11 original compositions by Karen and 1 cover of a song originally by her Citizens Band cohort Rachelle Garniez. In a coolly inviting voice, strumming an acoustic guitar, Karen Elson summons up a dark yet seductive atmosphere... an after-midnight world that is irresistibly mysterious and alluring. The arrangements for her small band (featuring the virtuosic Jackson Smith on guitar, Elson's longtime collaborator Rachelle Garniez on accordion and vocals, and husband-producer Jack on drums) evoke the lonesome side of Country or the tormented side of the Blues; with eerie organ touches, keening electric guitars and some mean Rock swagger.
