The golden boys of new disco are back! After laying low for a couple years, Alex Frankel and Nick Millhiser return as Holy Ghost! to deliver more of that disco pop goodness on DFA. The two lifelong New Yorkers are well versed in what makes a great dance tune, but what's even more impressive is the fact they do their own vocals (hooks for daaays) and craft songs that can go well on the dance floor and beyond. Case in point with the 12" opener and title track "Crime Cutz" that sets the tone with some lush ambience before breaking into a poppin' synth disco groove. The heat continues with the Billy Jean-esque "Stereotype" with those epic chords and shuffling triplet bounce, while "Compass Point" puts more emphasis on the funk with a wicked bassline and rhythm I'm guessing was inspired by early 80's work of the Nassau studio of the same name (think Grace Jones, Sly & Robbie, etc). Finally, "Footstep" closes it out with that signature HG! synth pop vibe we all know and love. Pic sleeve cover.
