♫♪  Snow Ghosts - The Fleet EP

Snow Ghosts have thrown their driving track “The Fleet,” an Ian William Craig remix of “Circles Out Of Salt,” and a live rendition of “And the World Was Gone” onto a digital-only EP, curled up in a weathered bottle and cast by marooned beasts into the stream below. The originals to all three appeared on their February release A Wrecking, an album that was first to feature Oliver Knowles (of EXES) alongside original members Ross Tones (a.k.a. Throwing Snow) and Hannah Cartwright (a.k.a. Augustus Ghost)

It’s a solid EP, too. Ian William Craig (whose A Turn of Breath caught the #6 spot on our Favorite Music Releases of 2014 list) hands in a blazing remix of “Circles Out of Salt.” In his version, Cartwright’s vocals are shot at speeds known only to angels and demolitionists at the exact moment a loop is reversed — a realm almost non-existent yet celebrated by divergent realities. The Fleet EP becomes a small but comfortable home for Craig’s soaring remix, which shares a vanity with a clean, burly live rendition of “And the World Was Gone.” Here, rent is never due, and no one eats your food.

The Fleet EP is available to purchase via iTunes and Houndstooth (one of our favorite labels of 2014) and can be streamed on Soundcloud or Spotify. Houndstooth also has a fierce-looking Snow Ghosts t-shirt featuring artwork from The Fleet in their digital shop, so grab them while the ink is fresh.
