Paul Cary - "Goner"

I've been on a bit of a vinyl binge of late and one of my favorite purchases has been this split 7" with Thee Oh Sees and Paul Cary from 2009. Cary, formerly of the Horrors, released an impressive full-length last year titled Ghost of a Man, which you can still download for free at Candy Dinner. The songwriter's tangled lo-fi garage rock is spun into a reflective country ditty on the winning "Goner," which slowly crackles and jangles along with Cary's acoustic guitar and quiet breathes of trumpet. If you're inclined to go the raw and bluesy route, try the great "Iryna."

Buy the Ghost of a Man 12" at Stankhouse Records for a measly $10.
