Ghosts of Jupiter brings a fresh take on psychedelic rock with their new self-titled debut album released earlier this month. Their music ranges from the Black Keys-esque, “Thieves” to the trippy Zep tinged “Paper Roses” or the Cream-edged, “Trample on Daisies,” and “Shelter.”
Ghosts of Jupiter (named after the planetary nebula) struck me as a fitting name for this psych/rock quint that’s as much in tune to the 60’s/70’s vibe of Led Zepplin or Cream as they are to the The Black Keys, or Raconteurs. Nate Wilson (vocals/keys), Adam Terrell (guitar), Johnny Trama (guitar), Tommy Lada (bass), and Thomas Arey (drums) combine outstanding musicianship with an edginess that could carry these Ghosts into the limelight.
These Boston guys are off to a great start – with their first album in the can after only a few months of playing together, I’m sure we’ll be hearing a lot more about GOJ. Check out their first single, “Thieves” above, and let us know what you think!
