Eric Crespo is at the epicenter of the sonic force known as Ghost to Falco. There's an eerie timelessness to Crespo's voice, whether he's singing more conventional-sounding Americana or the heavy, deeply rhythmic haunted pieces for which his projects are more well known. Comparisons to Nick Cave and 16 Horsepower are an easy pigeonhole, thanks to the elements of country and blues in the songwriting, the musical equivalent of sepia tones, starkly contrasting colors and dark lyrical vision in common. Even so, Ghost to Falco's sound is more tribal and closer in tone to Edgar Allen Poe than William Faulkner — Gothic without being Goth. The live show features visual projections that embody this unique musical perspective and is not to be missed.
