Ghost is the debut album from Tape Deck Mountain, project of San Diego native Travis Trevisan. Laid off from his job almost a year ago, Trevisan took full advantage of this free time in crafting Tape Deck’s debut album of slacker-fuzzed lullabies. Ghost takes the listener on a journey from lo-fi to hi-fi (self proclaimed “mid-fi” to be exact), from quiet hushes to loud guitar sonics. Influences range from Phil Elverum to My Bloody Valentine and back to the Beach Boys. The record will be released in November via Sacramento label Lefse.
