Ghosts, One For The Team’s third album, will be released on Afternoon Records on March 16, 2010. The disc is the greatly anticipated follow-up to the Minneapolis quartet’s critically acclaimed Build It Up, which came out in August of 2008 and attracted attention from NPR, MTV, Daytrotter, and even Gossip Girl. Ghosts was recorded in San Francisco at John Vanderslice’s Tiny Telephone Studios in August and produced by singer/guitarist Ian Anderson, who made the decision to record the disc on tape.
“Recording to tape was really important to me for how the record turned out in general, Anderson says. “Nowadays you can make everything perfect during the recording process, but you can’t do that on tape. The way it is is the way it is and that was really important to us as a band. A lot of the record was also done live. The sound of the tape is really warm, you can really hear the room more. There’s a sense of breathing in and out.”
