Biography

Ghostland Observatory’s entire approach to music – sonically, aesthetically, conceptually – is essentially a melding of the two distinctly different personalities of its two members, Thomas Ross Turner and Aaron Behrens. Whereas Turner, the producer/drummer/keyboardist of the duo, finds solace in the minimal, bleak cable-patch squawks of Karlheinz Stockhausen and the ...

"Someday, everyone will be doing it!"
O. Marie
You have the earthy voice for Behrens complimented by the very methodical and mechanical sound of Turner's synthesizer.
'Rebel' Rod Ames
It's as if a piece of every musical genre of the past and present were blended together to create a keyboard.

As good, or better, than their other album, Paparazzi Lightning (see my review). They have the ability to reinvent themselves from song to song. Their songs always have a driving pulse, which is usually complimented with electronic melodic goodness. Check it out. Try something new.

I think Aaron and Thomas of Ghostland Observatory are geniuses. "delete delete - I eat meat" is a simply-written, eloquent album with even more lush-sounding synthesizers and extra-ordinary vocalizations than the first album. (Get the first album, too! And the Austin DVD! And tickets!)

Rhythms are smooth and straightforward, nothing heavy or too intense, more pleasurable, relaxing dance beats - and fun. (I love to do yoga to Ghostland.) I find the compositions to be one of the best things I've ever heard, soon to be the envy of other artists (such as Madonna, who only hires the "best"), those who make their approaches to electronica more complicated than it needs to be. "Candy Rider", "Silver City" and "Rich Man", among others, are songs that stick with you, and you'll remember.

I remember being in third grade, in the 1960's...! One day our teacher rolled a phonograph into the classroom and said - "Listen to this, everybody... This is what music is going to sound like some day in the future!" She proceeded to play an LP with a bunch of be-beep-bop sounds, and sounds that "weee-ee-dooop!" and tinkerbell noises. The children gathered around the machine, wrinkling their noses.

"But how will they ever make music with these sounds?" we asked. "Don't worry about it," our teacher said. "Someday, everyone will be doing it!" We just couldn't see it.

Imagine how thrilled we were years later, as teenagers, when the soundtrack to "Clockwork Orange" came out - we couldn't get enough of it. But even then, there was a general awareness that it would take a real talent to generate original music with synthesizers. And many have been more redundant than successful. Consider pop music...

What would a robot making love to a tree sound like?

Well, if you ask Aaron Behrens and Thomas Turner, they'll reply, "Ghostland Observatory!"

Behrens is the front man, guitar player, vocalist, and dancer extrordinare. Turner is the keyboardist and drummer. He also produces. Together they create Ghostland Observatory. Another little `ol band from Texas.

Correction! As it states on their web site, "Ghostland Observatory is not a band, but an agreement between two friends to create something that not only heals their beat-driven hearts, but pleases their rock `n roll souls." Amen to that! And can I have a Hallelujah?!

On their MySpace page they say the were influenced by such greats as Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, David Bowie, The Doors, anyone with balls! All of the previously named artists had that in common.

Let's take Johnny Cash for instance. Did anyone ever see him doing a Trent Reznor song? Not only did he do that, He did it better than anyone has. If you can listen to him sing `Hurt' with out crying, well, your dead already, so forget it!

Ballsy! That's how their label, Trashy Moped Recordings, refers to it. And that's what Ghostland Observatory is. I was going to write about their album `Delete Delete-I Eat Meat' , but have decided to just write about this band. I love their sound, and if you could imagine a robot making love to a tree... Well I can hear that in their music. Mechanical, yet earthy.

The first time I ever saw or even heard of these guys was on Austin City Limits. They had me at the first note almost. Watching Behrens perform was reminiscent of Jim Morrison or Mick Jagger yet his gyrations were his own. Those gyrations add to the enjoyment of hearing them.

Ah! So good! Electronica-Funk-Pop! This is what VHS or Beta would sound like if they were less melodic... but I'm not saying that's a bad thing. This cd is a little rough starting up, but it gets better, and so do their other cds!
