"Hungry Ghosts! These Songs are Doors. (Mudboy Vol 5)"

Mudboy dishes out a taste of emotional ambient with a beat . The album is built from solid blocks of white noise coming in mournful waves. Ephemeral use of wisps of human vocals gives the tracks some ghostly depth while the organ melodies add a Gypsy Carnival texture. Faster tracks: 5, 7, 8. No FCC's

1 (4:59) Whispering with woody percussion for 2 min. Loud buzzing, squeaking with chanting for 2 min. Otherwise a quiet track.

2 (9: 29) female humming on synthed harmonics. A soft melody comes in at 7:00 but never really formulates.

3 (2:01) Water sounds with an initial wave of white noise yield to a soft melody with sharp bell percussion.

4 (4:13) Alto organ in a meandering melody. 30 seconds of dead air at the end

5 (4:30) The Organ has a Balkan flavor. Human howling gets creepier and creepier. Great Halloween track!

6 (3:08) A slow pendulum melody

7 (4:27) Pulsing beeps start off the track and leads into a dissonant guitar melody in the last minute.

8 (2:41) A soft jazzy sound beat with human whistling and then male singing.
