EVERYTHING FALLS APART: Ghost: EP

I know what you’re thinking. Yes, these folks obviously love themselves some Hüsker Dü. Who doesn’t? However, don’t think of it as them paying mere homage to a once great and classic band. They’ve got way more heart and soul than just that—albeit a very fragile heart and a terribly frustrated soul. The picture on the insert of beer bottle caps and cigarette butts might give you the impression that they very well could be playing a two-song soundtrack to your own uneventful dog days and sleepless, restless nights (or maybe it’s just me.) Hüsker Dü is long dead, buddy. Everything Falls Apart is here now.
