Poltergiest - Yesterday Fades (2020)

Another great thing about live music being back is that we get to discover new things; we spotted Poltergeist's name on the poster for the annual Alpha House fundraiser at the Palomino, and decided to check out their tape in advance. We're glad we did - this tape is a one-person show featuring Kalen Baker's forays into dark wave, traditional metal, and shoegaze. It's a pretty compelling mix that gets us in all the right places - dark, sweeping pads and chiming Jazzmasters give way to heavy riffage at just the right time. We're really looking forward to seeing the band live next weekend.

It looks like the tape is sold out, but you can grab the download from the Poltergeist bandcamp
