    Actor: Elliot Bergman.
    Unknown Contributor Role: Quin Kirchner.
    Arranger: NOMO.
    Nomo plays fusion in the true sense of the word. With its eight-piece ensemble creating a burbling web of deep, polyrhythmic groove, fluid Afro-pop guitar lines, driving hornlines, and free-jazz-inspired improvisations, Nomo doesn't sound like anyone else on the indie rock scene. On GHOST ROCK, the band's third album, Nomo continues to push the fusion envelope, while placing that envelope firmly in the listener's hand.
    Jazz, funk, post-rock, Afro-beat, Krautrock, and straight rock all contribute to the shifting soundscape of GHOST ROCK. Where else can one hear kalimbas, electric sawblade, baritone sax, glockenspiel, rock riffs, and a brainwave monitor (featured on the opener, "Brainwave") on the same album? Nomo draws a straight line from a postmodern world directly to the listener's primordial ear; their third album comes with a guarantee to move both brain and body.

  • Critic Reviews
    Down Beat (p.72) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Employing an earnest, rocking bass beneath jittery horn parts that delve wistfully into minor realms, the album expands and contracts like a rubber band between the influences of its contributors."
    Blender (Magazine) (p.84) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "They have a deep horn section that plays soulful unison lines evoking chill-zone Blue Note jazz....GHOST ROCK fires the brain..."
    URB (Magazine) (p.89) - "[T]his Michigan collective embrace afrobeat rhythms, free jazz horns and sharpened keyboards to map out complex displays of perpetual sonic motion."
