    On their Bandcamp page, Ghost Funk Orchestra describe themselves as “a mystery. Plain and simple. Dirty, soulful production, verbed and fuzzed out guitars, mysterious vocals that feel like a lost score to a Quentin Tarantino film. The brainchild of one-man producer/musician/arranger Seth Applebaum, GFO is forging new territory and blurring the line between soul and psychedelic.”

    Released on Karma Chief/Colemine Records, August 2019. The album cover shows a photograph of scattered seeds on a grid of concrete tiles, sandwiched between light weight caps from Neue Helvetica and two heavy lines of Motter Ombra. In order to preserve the stacked-and-justified design, the top line of the band name uses type in a smaller point size. I do not quite get why the word space between “Ghost” and “Funk” is left/made so wide that it breaks the solid block.

    Cover for the digital single record “Skin I’m In”, March 2019 (self-published).
