Maybe it’s because we’ve gotten a nice dose of warmth around the Bay lately (hopefully foreshadowing the summer days to come), or maybe it’s because we’re just suckers for a good hook, but something about this EP—the debut from Los Angeles outfit Blacks& (get it? black sand)—struck us just right. From the beginning, it looks like A Ghost That Follows Me is a little too heavy on the “cute” vibes, but the songs prove to be smart, infectious, and touched with just the right amount of kitsch—reminding us that we don’t always need to be so gersh darn serious! For our money, the EP’s highlight comes last, with the somehow light yet heavenly pop of “Tonight.”  The whole affair can be streamed/downloaded for free below.
