True to form, from start to finish the LP is top notch. Each track just keeps the forward momentum going - "Some Children" and "Jam for Jerry" are 2 of my favorites right now. I think one of the best things you can say about a DJ is that their music keeps you in a steady, constant state of movement. Nick Millhiser and Alex Frankel double up that energy as Holy Ghost! - and it's a perfect combination.

DFA Records even has a 14-track "mixtape" of an absolutely incredible DJ set, featuring HG!-remixed cuts from Phoenix, MGMT, Cut Copy and more. I listened to whole thing while writing this review, in fact. Get it here.
For my fellow Angelenos, you can check out Holy Ghost! live at the Echoplex on Monday April 18th at 9pm, with Chairlift opening. Advanced tix are only $15 general admission, and it's an 18+ show if that kind of thing applies to/interests you. Lock it down at TicketWeb - I'm there for sure!
