iTunes Editors’ Notes

When Nicolas Fromageau left M83 back in 2004, that band went on to fairly well-traveled pop territory while Fromageau took some time crafting his new musical persona. Perhaps partly in answer to M83's frothiness, Team Ghost took on a darker, more opaque mystique. Its music seemed born of an inter-genre marriage: a whiff of electro-pop here, a wash of shoegaze there, with gauzy wrappings and experimental ribbons of texture tying things up rather neatly. TG's full-length debut, Rituals, shakes things up, opening with the surprisingly guitar-heavy "Away"—a number that unfurls and billows with an Explosions in the Sky style of drama. That surprise continues with "Curtains," an energetic tune hammering out brittle synth lines and Sonic Youth–inspired guitar noise. That raucous side of TG continues on infectious tracks like "Dead Film Star" and "Fireworks," but elsewhere—as on "Broken Dreams" and "Things Are Sometimes Tragic"—ambient electronics prevail. Fromageau's balancing act is well done. Sparkling pop gems like "Montreuil" are buried treasure, the offspring of Team Ghost's genre-mating tricks.

Customer Reviews

Pleasently Surprised

Nicolas Fromageau released a quality album here.

Probably best known as "The guy who was with M83 before they were famous" Nicolas was one of the 2 hive minds behind "Dead Cities, Red Seas & Lost Ghosts" arguably M83's finest album, and my personal favorite.

Although I don't consider this work as good as M83's, this is a good sophmore release, and much better than M83 b-sides quality. Nicolas isn't the only member of this band and I love the sound they have as a whole here and I'm excited to hear future releases from them, and am confident this band will be able to stand on its own and not only be notorious for having a former member of M83 in it.
