Holy Ghost! is one of those groups that has honed in on their sound. The group bounces between fully formed songs and crafty 12″ singles geared toward DJs with sneaky precision. This year already has one in Dumb Disco Ideas for DFA. Now, they’re prepping their second full length album, Dynamics, due out September 10. As a lead in, they’ve released “Teenagers In Heat,” an album outtake. It has the same summer uptempo vibe that characterizes many Holy Ghost! records. It kind of sounds like it could be something on New Jersey’s Italians Do It Better label.
Since 2007’s Hold On, Frankel and Millhiser have been New York staples and key figures in the disco and house scene. They’ve made a home for themselves on DFA, and by the looks of it, they’ll continue that relationship with Dynamics. Former LCD Soundsystem member James Murphy has also assisted with the production.
