In support of “Work For Hire”, Holy Ghost have been taking over the dance floor with their all vinyl DJ sets. Today they announced they will keep the disco alive with the addition of a handful of new tour dates.
Over the course of eight years, Holy Ghost! have gone from being DFA’s rising sons to triple threats: indefatigable DJs, inventive musicians, and go-to producers recruited to remix. Trying to pin a specific sound to this musically adventurous group—whose dance-floor prowess frequently elicits the words “disco,” “synth,” and “pop”—would be a disservice to the sundry projects they take on.
The new album injects new life into the work of everyone from Cut Copy (“Hearts on Fire”) to Blood Orange (“You’re Not Good Enough”) to Katy Perry (“Unconditionally”). Also Featuring remixes from the band’s catalogue in sequential order from 2007 – present, Work For Hire is a time capsule that traces that Holy Ghost! aesthetic, from their nascent days stripping down and adding groove to tracks by Panthers (“Goblin City”) and MGMT (“Of Moons, Birds, and Monsters”) to bright, radical recent rethinkings of songs by Hanni El Khatib (“Two Brothers”) and José Gonzáles (“Let It Carry You”).
