[DUSTY AMERICANA] Taken individually, each part of Roadkill Ghost Choir’s name can induce something akin to shuddering or shivering, and so it goes with its music. The band’s sound is marked by humble, earthy Americana dripping with arid ambience and calls to mind any number of flat landscapes that seem to go for miles in all directions. Andrew Shepard’s vocals wander through the echoing soundscapes like a mariner searching for a beacon of light in absolute darkness, and the effect is haunting and mesmerizing.
