Last week NY-based art rocker Ghost X Gardens premiered the title-track to his new album Heartbreak Hotel Chelsea via The Big Takeover who observed “One part Grizzly Bear, one part Smashing Pumpkins, with a lashing of Lou Reed, this idiosyncratic whiz kid has delivered one of the most peculiar records of the year.
His album Heartbreak Hotel Chelsea, set to be released on August 18th, is a wild hodgepodge of horn-laden ’70s rock ‘n’ roll, Beach Boys accoutrements, nu-metal gravitas, and highly personal, gin-soaked chats with the cross-dressing matriarch of the Hotel, Storme’ DeLarverie. Needless to say, there is rarely a dull moment.”
